So this is a safe that I made for a welder at my collage. It measures 11”x8”x6 3/4” with all wood hinges and bradd rod pivot. This was made after the welding instructor gave me some oak boards and teak, all about 2” thick and 6”wide. All that he wanted in return was some locks for his grandkids to play with, that’s another post. The carcase is made of mahogany, the kind I have no idea, and the door and dial are maple. I wood burned the numbers and dashes. The dial was the first thing that I every turned and I think it turned out very nice. I gave the whole thing two coats of classic oak minwax stain with polyurathane followed by three coats of gloss plyurathane. I think it’s the best lock that i’ve made to date. Time to make was about 16 hours.
