« Part 2: Lock Center And Inlay Part 3 of Lacewood Lock series Part 4: Finished »

Today I made the shackle, The latch bolt, and the lever. The shackle is made of walnut and the other parts are from maple. I also drilled the back face and after sanding all the parts did a dry fit of the lock body and back face to make sure all parts worked properly. I then applied Arm R Seal to the top of the lock body. It is very hard to get to after assembly. After some more fitting I will glue the back to the center then the front.

Nice piece … What is Arm R Sea and why do you use it?

Arm R Seal is a finish made by General Finishes. I learned about it watching The Wood Whisperer. I use the satin but it comes in semi gloss and gloss. I like the natural look it gives wood, and it gives the wood better protection than a oil finish which is what I used to use.
