I used this on a walnut - combination jewelry armoire and music box.

Steven Posted January 15, 2014
I used this on a walnut - combination jewelry armoire and music box. I put it on the music box, which houses a 72 note movement. Because this was a special gift for my wife, I used the highest quality hardware and movement.
First the positives: This was very easy to install. A 1/4 inch forstner bit and 1/4 inch chisel did the job easily. It works great and does exactly what it is designed to do.
Now the negatives: The quality does not match the quality of the Brusso hinges and other nice brass hardware I used. The key plate is thin, flat, and plain looking; and it is installed with brass brads instead of screws. The catch is also of thin material and installed to the lid with brads instead of screws. The thickness of brads' heads prevents the lid from shutting completely, leaving a small gap between the box and lid. I was able to make the gap smaller, but not able to eliminate it altogether by mortising the lock's plate into the top of the box. They also made the latch and catch spaced far enough apart that I had to use a small screwdriver to pry the catch down some in order to lock it.
This lock would be sufficient for some projects, but is over-priced for the quality. I found other mortise locks on the internet that would have been more suitable for my needs at similar prices, but I ordered from Rockler because they are an excellent company to deal with.
Love the company (Rockler) - not so keen on this product at this price.

I built this curly maple jewel...

I built this curly maple jewel box and dyed it with your "Burnt Sienna" dye. I had to mix it a bit more concentrated than what the directions recommended but I finally got the color I wanted. It turned out better than I thought. Note, I also used your barrel hinges and full mortise lockset. I like the way the project turned out.
