Project Information

Finished my rendition of the Railroad Switch Lock. I used walnut for the veneer, solid oak for the body and key cover and ash for the internal works. The lock is fully functional with the wonderful "Click" when the hasp snap shut and locks. I have one more lock to make in this series, and if the pandemic quarantine continues I will most likely get it made one sooner than expected.
Thank you to looking, let me know what you think!!
