I bought Tim Detweilers book a while back. I’ve been working on this off and on for the last month or so. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Thanks for looking.

Great lock…is that to keep the tools in or outsiders out? We lived in Western Washington for years. Love the Tri-Cities area as well

Hawaiilad, we lived on the west side for several years when I first joined the Army. Now we are over here on the east side and it’s like a whole different world. We do enjoy it though. With any luck, this lock will keep my wife from “borrowing” a screw driver or hammer or whatever else she may have a use for. The never seem to find there way back when she uses them.

If she is anything like my wife, that lock isn’t large enough to keep her out of you tools. Every time I look for a cordless drill, the wife has it in her green house. And I have several of them!! I really plan on buyer her, her own set of tools. Has there been much snow in the Mountains this year?

Neat idea using the clock inserts. I’ve got both of Tim’s books. I’d love to have the plans for his entry lock that he made.
