These are really cool. I’ve never seen a wooden padlock before either. You have to tell us how you made these.

Are they from http://www.amazon.com/Making-Working-Wooden-Woodworkers-Library/dp/0941936600 ? I’ve had that book for 10 years but never made one yet. These are very nice!

Very nicely done. The book that these can be found has been given and there is also a second book. There are different types of locks to be made. All wooden components. I too make these but have not sold any and cam not figure out why. I add a clock to mine to change it up abit.
Yours are very well done and I appreciate the work involved in them. Thanks for showing.

Mudbone, These locks rock!!! Just joined this so I could post this to you I can’t drive a nail straight to save my butt, but I would love to purchase one of your wooden locks —do you have any for sale? I am an Air Force vet, too, live in Lehigh Valley. Keep up the great work! Dave
