Wood Lock Plans
The Ultimate in No-Tech Security!
Whether you are new to the hobby or have been passionate about woodworking for years, we are confident that you’ll thoroughly enjoy our plans. All project plans come with full-color instructions that clearly walk you through every step. Most designs can be built quickly and easily with basic woodworking tools.
Plans are gauged to be in one of 3 skill levels. Skill Level: 1 would be the easiest to reproduce, best for the beginning woodworker, while at the other end of the scale Skill Level: 3 would be the most challenging with precision details required in the construction of that particular wooden lock system.
In real life the chances of you having the exact same box would be rather lucky, so in order to compensate the plans have been written in a manner that we feel is the best approach to translate to you how the mechanism works so that you are best able to add it to your project. Dimensions of the stock material and the size of parts being made are given as an example of scale and ratio, though not all dimensions of the stock box that I used will necessarily be given. It has been my experience that you will find that many of these locking system designs can be made from the off cuts in your shop. Other parts like small magnets, rubber bands, hardwood dowels and wood knobs can be sourced at your local craft store or Home Depot type store.
Have fun browsing through our site and let your imagination run wild. There are plenty of projects to choose from. We would love to hear about your experiences and see your finished projects.
Over any extended period of time, being an artist requires enthusiasm more than discipline.
Enthusiasm is not an emotional state.
It is spiritual commitment, a loving surrender to our creative process,
a loving recognition of all the creativity around us.
