  • Bank Vault style door lock

    I though a neat door lock for the basement furnace room / storage room would look like a bank vault gear setup. So.. 380 gear teeth later, I came up with this. A combination of Baltic birch and MDF of various thicknesses it took a couple days to come up with the final design and cutting of the gears. Turning the wheel clockwise, lifts the locking hook on the right off the pin. Turning it counter-clockwise re-locks it. If my wife doesn't feel like turning the wheel, just lifting the locking hook (it's attached with a friction screw) will also unlock the door. Enjoy

    That is such an awesome lock. If there were kids around it would get worn out...and I'm not just talking young kids....my hubby would play with that every time he'd walk by it! Cool idea Pop.

        That is real neat! What was the total time to design, cut out and assemble?

                3-layer sailboat plaque
                by Ennobee
                After earlier this year I went through my books and got me a score of images of vintage sailing ships(*), I keep in finding new ways of making plaques with this designs. After trying my hand at segmentation, which kind-of worked, and multiple bevel-cuts,
                which I still have to keep trying until...

                I made the first wolf for my grandson’s birthday. I have made 5 more and sold them all! Personally, I hope to never see another kayak again!...

                Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my...

                Scott,
                I was shocked, yet most appreciative, of the surprise I found in the mail today. I am truly thankful for the friends I have made on the board.
                We are a small group, but I feel we all would jump in a second to come to the aid of each other. This is my electronic family.
