Here is a lock I made out of Palm wood and I cut it so the end grain shows on the side.
Palm wood is a strange wood it is similar to a bucket full of straws compressed to the size of a drinking glass. It has not real grain and the side grain is sort of nondescript. But the end grain is sort of interesting.
This one too I had to bandsaw the top section off and repair a broken wood spring after I had it all finished. So you can see a line on the top section where I reglued it as close as I could.
Awesome work as always Herb . Hey Valentine's Day is coming up here pretty quick . Maybe you could find some of your old girlfriends from your past on Facebook ,as the heart shaped locks would make for a nice gift , and maybe raise the probability of something else
