« Part 1: Cutting Stock Part 2 of Lacewood Lock series Part 3: Shackle and Parts »

Today I worked on the front lock face. I put a inlayed piece of bubinga for the key hole trim. This was my first try,just a simple circle. After a few practice pieces I worked on the project part. Turned out pretty good I think. I got the grain off a little.
I then cut out the lock body and made the spring. The spring is a piece of hickory 1/16 thick 5/8 wide and 2 7/8 long

Great start ,Look like the locks that I made. This being the inner part.
Lots of fun and takes a lot of patience.
Good luck with this lock. Keep us posted.
