Looks very slick. I am guessing you have the book from Tim Detweiler also. How touchy was the mechanism to put together?

Yes, I got it off e-bay
It’s not too bad for this one, the combination locks are a littlle tricky.
Takes a lot of time and steady nerves but fun and a challenge,

Among other jobs, as a former locksmith, your project looks and I’m sure works fantastic. A lot of detail and the care you took sure shows. I like your choice of woods.
