Default Christmas Padlocks

Here are some more wooden padlocks for Christmas presents.

Since I made my last series I have been experimenting with ways to make a stronger shackle.
I have come up with some good ideas around Sticks suggestion of laminating them , After making up a dozen or so in various ways, I have come to the conclusion the BB plywood is the fastest,easiest way to go. So 3 of these have BB shackles and one is a laminated one out of Ash and walnut veneer.
I made a board out of a thin layer of ash ,several layers of walnut and other veneer criss-cross layered, glued and pressed together and then cut and shaped the shackle. I think it is the nicest looking of the bunch.
I did several other shackles in other ways, which I will post in a separate thread how I did them.

The locks are made of Peruvian Walnut, Lacewood/mahogany, Stacked P. walnut/Aromatic Cedar/mahogany/maple.

There are a couple of more in unfinished stages that won't make it in time for this Christmas

Herb.

Nicely done, Herb. As always.

Just incredible Herb! You've got one hell of a talent there. The laminated idea for the shackle really takes it to another level

Herb,

Really Great. I can't imagine how to even start as well as to be able to build one of those.

Herb they get better and better with each batch you make. I don't know if you can improve on them anymore.
