Just because eBooks are on the rise doesn't mean all those pretty hardcovers have to be relegated to clearance or the trash. I've given this old hardcover a second chance at life by hollowing out the inside and filling it with a stainless steel flask!

I found this old tome, "The Art of Living", in the clearance section. I thought the title was perfect for a flask safe!

Perfect for those readers/drinkers out there, and a great way to sneak booze around places. For legal reasons, I won't disclose WHERE you can sneak booze around, but you get the idea!

These make great groomsmen gifts - convo me for more info if you'd like to set up your own custom listing!

These are the original flask safes on Etsy.com, as seen online since 2008.

More about the book safe making process:
▴ The pages of the book are securely glued together, and then the inside is precision carved. There are no two books that are alike - each one is handmade and one-of-a-kind.

▴ The inside pages are not lined in any way. In fact, I always maintain as much as the original book as a I can - the bottom page is the original text and page, and I usually leave a few loose pages before the carving.

▴ The book is not magnetized. I find that most book safes will stand on their own without the front cover falling open, and find that magnets do not allow me to keep the look of a vintage book intact.

▴ All Pommes Frites books are "ethically sourced". I never use new, rare, or valuable books to create book safes. Pommes Frites repurposes books that are at the end of their lifespan for one reason or another, usually claiming them from clearance bins and library book sales.
