Beef Up Your Wooden Garage Entry Door
Cut the plywood to fit over the door's center section (make sure it covers the windows but doesn't cover the door handle). Fasten it to the door with drywall screws.
Test-fit a bracket and 2x4 against the door. Measure how far the bracket is from the wall, then cut filler strips that distance and install them. Fasten the brackets in place by drilling 1/4-in. pilot holes and inserting 3/8 x 3-in. lag screws. Place the 2x4s in the brackets.
Install a Small Safe
Install the wall safe or cylinder floor safe by bolting it to the floor (most safes have holes inside for just that purpose). Hide it in the corner of a closet or other inconspicuous area. Or mount the wall safe inside a wall and cover it with a picture. Or chip out a hole in your concrete slab and stick in the floor safe, then pour new concrete around it.
