I decided to try my hand at building some locks 100% made from wood. The most important part to the whole lock design are 2 pieces 1/8" thick which must be springy enough to grasp the shackle and lock the padlock. I bought a 1/4" thick piece of ash from Rockler to use for the key spring pieces for the lock. I also used other Rockler products including maple lumber and red padauk from the cut-off box containing exotic hardwoods. The ash worked great for this wood lock!
"Rockler Rocks. They have the best customer service.I am disabled and elderly so when I receive great service it takes me back to the days when everyone gave good service. Thank You Rockler you are the best. Keep up the good work." -
