« Part 1: Introduction Part 2 of HHWW: Project Candidates - Stuff I Might Make One Day series Part 3: Japanese Toolbox »

Stumbled across this interesting and informative little wooden mechanical marvel today and thought it would make a nice handwork practice piece for the coming Winter. Nights are long and Winter longer here in Scandinavia.

The project is sourced from https://woodgears.ca/combolock/index.html and plans are available for purchse there.

A reader made a wooden ‘safe’ to go along with the lock: https://woodgears.ca/combolock/ramsay.html

That’s pretty cool. Would be a great practice in patience!

Wooden locks have always fascinated me. Someday I will try them.
