My next Project

Recommended Posts

My next major project is a Birthday gift for my Twin brother for our 40th.

It is gonna be a carpentry and blacksmithing combo; a treasure chest. I want to create a nice iron bound wooden chest with all handmade accoutrement. anyone got a line on some nice plans for such a creature?

I also have never made a padlock before and would love some nice plans for a good medival-renaissance padlock.

ANy Help is appreciated!

I was going to suggest a replica of the Mastermyr tool box, there are plans on Anvilfire but for some reason every time I tried connecting, the link shut my browser down. :confused:

A search of the Mastermyr Project will get pics of the locks as well as the tools. I don't think I'm going back again today though.

I had to reboot to get cut and paste to work again.

Stupid thinky machines! :mad:

I'd take a look at Rockler
There is a plan available, but also some good ideas for the hardware.


Thanks Ddan, that almost makes me want to work wood.
