    I’m in the process of making a box with a false bottom. Just wondering if anyone has made one. I need ideas on how to remove the bottom. I’m thinking either a pin hole thru the bottom for a paper clip to insert and push the bottom up. Or, some magnets on one of the feet. The magnets would hold the foot on the box and you could still remove it and use it to align with magnets hidden on the false bottom.

    I’ve watched a couple of videos like this one. Mine is not nearly as complicated. Just a lift out panel.

    Is the inside going to have dividers? If so, use that as the handle to lift the bottom. I saw one video where the kitchen drawer was used and it had a fork glued to the false bottom. But that's just dumb.
    And a magnet could be used to keep the bottom from moving around, and it would be easy to lift out. Just use some low power mags....

    I like the divider option. Never thought of that.

    I saw one at a craft show years ago that used a paper clip trip. Can't recall, either wormy chestnut or oak, but the point with the wormy wood, the push hole was hidden well with all the other holes.
