Yes, they are all functional….warded keys made from 1/4” hardwood and the combination lock works as well, it took some time to build the wheel pack and set the combination, the wheel pack is made completely out of black walnut. The lever lock uses a bit key also made from wood.

There is a book called” Making Working Wooden Padlocks” by Tim Detwiler, there are 5 plans for 5 different locks covered in detail on how to make them, I modified the wards on some of the warded padlocks to help them function a little easier, other wise they can be tight turning the keys. Pick up the book, guys…you can get it on
