I recently had a request to build another of these Giant working wood locks for a Minnesota lady getting married at the end of this month.
The main lock body is 1×12” common pine. The hasp and key cover are red oak oil stained with a cherry color. The key is maple and red oak. The 4 buttons are oak.
Inside, the spring is ash. Ash is excellent for the spring because it will bend well.
This is a massive lock in terms of size and weight. You can tell how big it is by the picture with the common coffee cup.
If you are interested in my trials & tribulations of building this giant wood lock, see my web site for more details.
