I found these pictures of three old Egyptian padlocks that I tried to copy. What I thought were going to be difficult,proved to be quite easy and fun to make.
Hope you enjoy. The Dog, Camel, And the Elephant.

Great work Herb... the elephant is spot on from several different perspectives...very cool stuff, and no doubt, quite popular...

You need to give puzzle boxes a go...

Cool, Herb!

You should consider building a petting zoo. However, you will have to lock them all up!>:)>:)>:)

I know, I know...I can hear the groans...but I couldn't resist!

After much research, I came to the conclusion that the lines on the camels back are an encrypted diagram of building the pyramids.


ONE BLOCK AT A TIME.:grin::grin::grin:

Great job, Herb. I am going to try and make the elephant lock. Wish I had a little better view of the inside workings but I will give it a try.
Dave the last 2 pictures show the locking mech. for the Elephant. just a simple sliding bolt.
