no previous part Part 1 of Lacewood Lock series Part 2: Lock Center And Inlay »

Well today I start a new lock made from lacewood. I bought a piece of lacewood that was 48in. at Woodcraft. I have been wanting to try this for a long time and I guess now is as good a time as any. I am hoping to use different types of wood and make different styles of locks. I hope to learn to use inlay on this lock also. I started out by cutting of one piece about 13 in long. I then re sawed it and planed it to just under 3/8 thick. Then I cut a piece 4 1/2 long and ripped all parts to 5 1/2 wide. Lacewood does not plane very well. I had to slow the feed down and take light cuts, but it turned out pretty good.
