These were really a fun thing to make even thought the tolerances for the parts are pretty tight. Every lock I made I used exotic woods from WoodCrafters. The plans for these came from books called Making Working Wooden Locks by Tim Detweiler. The hasp which is out of oak works and is my design.
In the last picture you can notice that the center portion of the lock shows the oak center unlike the original plans for the lock by Detweiler. Also I put an ebony inlay around the key hole on this lock.
Locks are 100 percent wood including the springs that lock them.
Sorry for any blurred pictures I never claimed to be a photographer.
