    I was fortunate to get to do the test cutting on this project.
    I think it is a great and very different project from the norm and it was a lot of fun to cut.
    The acrylic version is really cool for show and tell.
    When will the next issue come out with this project?

        Very neat project. I'm going to have to get out my back issue and take another look.
        Ok I found the issue in the video but I did not see the lock in it. Am I over looking it or are the plans in another issue? I did have a book on wooden locks but I think I sold it. Can any one help me find the pattern for this lock.

          The lock is not in the issue used in the video. It will be in the spring issue that has not yet been released.
          So Dan you will have to wait for it.

              Thanks Rolf,
              Unfortunately, the author made the video BEFORE the magazine came out, so he used an issue he had as a prop in the article. There was no way I'd go back and make him re-do the video just to have the newest issue in the video.

                  It mails to subscribers in a few days, and hits newsstands around the middle of January.

                          Not to sure how legal this topic is but this pattern was copyrighted by Tim Detweiler in his 2 books Making Working Wooden Locks back in 10-2000 and Making More Working Wooden Locks: Complete Plans For Five Working Wooden Locks back in 12-2003.

                            Lock Copyright?

                            I am familiar with Tim Detweiler's locks. He has done a great job of the projects in his books and they are well worth buying. However, the lock featured here is not his design. Compare the two. Sure, they are both wooden locks but this lock uses a different mechanism which I believe is easier to build and more robust than Tim's. Tim's measurements and methods have not been used here. It is true they look similar at first glance as they are both locks so the comment is understandable.

                              Thanks for clarifying that, Adrian. At the magazine, we checked into that before we even accepted Adrian's article.

                                One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                                That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                                I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                                Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
