  • Wooden Lock Project, SSW 46

    Hi Gang,
    Ramjet pointed out an error we had in the article. In step 5, we say to use a 1 1/2" Forstner bit to drill the key insert hole. Unfortunately, the fractional equivalent we put after the fraction was incorrect. You need to use a 38mm not a 13mm bit.

    I'm sorry for the error.

    Best Regards,

    Another error in the Materials List:
    The materials list calls for 1/2" (13mm) wooden buttons. The 1/2" (13mm) refers to the diameter of the top of the button. Buttons are often sold based on the diameter of the part that fits into the hole, which should be 3/8" (10mm).

        My preference would be Flying Dutchman #5, as it could handle it if you needed some tighter turns---and going to a #7 or #9 if doing a lot of straighter cuts. Plywood does dull blades a bit faster though, no matter the blade brand choice. The best blade is kinda a broad question---every brand works...

        I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

        Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
