Curly Maple and Mahogany tissue box with my security locking pin system. The box won’t open if picked up. Takes a special movement to open the box.

.
Note: We don’t have any kids here but if I did the weapon would be locked up in a safe.

.
Inlay kit is from Harbor Fright $8.99 Worked great!

.
See how the locking pin works here. I added two more spring pins to the end to make the push to open it a little tougher.

.
All comments welcome!
Thanks for looking!

Another great creation wsTC...

The closest we can get in Australia to defensive tissues is Ucalyptus scented.

Love that locking pin mechanism… can see using them even on small tool boxes (if only to maintain flat box sides… no hinges or latches).
I know you have posted a link before, however, because of my eagerness to read, could I impose on you to post the supplier’s link again, please!
Tried to play around with a spring loaded “sealed pop rivet”... still toying… little cuccess…

Thanks Ivan,
Gun traffic! LOL! All is well around here no problems so far! This box makes my last Curly Maple box look plane.

Thanks Tony
Yes the heart did come out perfect! You just have to go slow and steady! Maybe I’ll do a blog someday when I get a chance.

Thanks SteveN
I really like the inlays also they add so much to the look!

Thanks Joe
The wife gave me that look again! She just loves hearts! I like your pun! Too funny!

Thanks Buster
The curly maple is really nice looking wood. After I made this box I looked at my other Curly Maple box and I thought it looked unfinished so I just may put hearts on that one also.

. Thanks LBD,
I found these Spring Punger on eBay. I can’t find the ones I used anymore. I didn’t pay much for the ones I bought. I see that they are more expensive now. You can do more searching on eBay for Spring Plunger's

Thanks Tony, Now I remember… Last time I looked into these, they would not ship to Australia… and guess what… c’mon guess… give up… ok!... they still don’t!

Thanks for the “search link”, I’m sure I’ll be able to pick one up from Hong Kong, Singapore or such… they already have me on speed dial.

PS. LBD the ones I used were 1/4”X 20 tread x 5/8” L

I just found the same spring plunger I have but the price is outrageous! $6.50 each plus shipping! I believe I paid about $8 for 10 pcs. with free shipping!

This is the package mine came in.

Tony, these just keep getting better and better. With Virginia’s new gun laws, I may need to make one!
