    here is the handcuffs from Pop's pattern....
    they are cut out of 1/4 oak...





    the pattern was right on the mark and very easy to cut...
    this might be top secret...but the hardest part was trying to get the spring the right length so it wouldn't bind up...



    Thanks again Pop's for the time you put into making this pattern.

          I love them too, and I do hope he strikes a deal to get them in the magazine! Its a great project. I am curious Trout on grain direction. Any reason you chose the direction you did for the smaller half? Dale

            I hope he really enjoys them as much as I did working on the pattern for you. They do look great! The spring I used was actually smaller then the 1/4" wood locking pin and surrounding framing so I didn't have too much trouble with it. I'm glad you chose the round links too. It makes a world of difference.

                              Very cool Pops,
                              I'm really interested in a pattern myself. I have a good friend who's a guard at a prison and I know he'd love them. He's hard to buy for and I know this would be something no one else would be getting him. Looking forward to seeing the pattern published in the magazine.

                                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                                Was it a good idea.....?...

                                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
