So the top AND bottom are secret storage spaces?

No... the 'secret space' is a slot in the base section. Refer to the photos included in the details above.

I have one problem with this box. Picking it up immediately gives away its secret because the secret compartment part shifts as soon as you touch the bottom, since there is no actual bottom to the box. I think a mostly solid bottom, even just one or two layers thick, with just a hole in the center would be better for keeping the secret compartment actually secret.

Thanks for your comment. The open base was designed in intentionally as, depending on the slicing app / machine used, the base can in fact be quite a snug / tight fit. A fraction can make all the difference and you need access from underneath to push the compartment out. If it is a snug / tight fit you would never get it out again without being able to push it from underneath.

As yours is clearly printing loose the simple solution is to scale everything down uniformly by say 5%. That will reduce the clearance between the compartment and the box body.

The alternative, if you use a design app, is to open the .stl and increase the compartment size (not box) by 5%.

I hope this helps.

How funny if the thief says "aaaa that cute little box to save my marijuana" and takes it ... jum :D
