    Working Wood Screw Lock

    Used Pine for the body, Red Mahogany for the end caps, Ash for the shackle, Maple for shackle mounting bracket and Maple for the key. Finishes with Satin WOP.
    Measures 7" L X 2-1/4" Dia. with the majority of the work done on my lathe with help from my scroll saw.
    Another design by Tim Detwweiler.

    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Very cool, Les! Very innovative idea. Was this your own design? Most impressive.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Like your others, love it.
    Not only a demonstration of craftsmanship, but it's 'coolness' is off the charts.
    Really neat.

    That is a beauty. Where did you get the idea or was it yours? Well done.

    Thanks, Les. I have his first book and built a few of one of the locks but never got around to trying some of the others. I might have to get another book of his.
