Decided to get the dust off the scrollsaw and cut some gears. Always thought a bank vault door gear setup looked neat so I though Id make a lock setup for the furnace room / storage room in the basement door. Grandkids love it. Gears are cut from a combination of 1/2 & 1/4” Baltic Birch and 1/2” MDF. All in all with the changes made along the way and 'screwups', I cut 280 gear teeth for this. https://www.lumberjocks.com/assets/pictures/projects/2283341-97x65.jpg?1602118955Next to last gear layout.https://www.lumberjocks.com/assets/pictures/projects/2283342-97x65.jpg?1602118970 Final installation on the furnace room / storage room door. Clockwise turning of the wheel causes the latch hook on the right side to lift from the lock pin assembly. Counterclockwise it re-locks the door again.In the event my wife needs to get in the storage room, she can just lift the locking hook (it's on a friction bolt) rather than turn the handle. Enjoy..

Made this box from a piece of wood that has been sitting in a corner for years and I have no idea what type of wood is and the veneer I used is walnut burl . This box is made to fit the TV remotes that alway look they don't belong on the coffee table , problem solved .
The design I saw for this table called it a Jupiter style table I don't know why but it sure was fun to make. It's not obvious but the top is book joined and the stretchers are lapped and mortised and tenoned to the legs. The woods are walnut and cherry with a boiled linseed finish and a Howard's wax protection. I love the simple and elegant design and the woods contrast each other so nicely. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking.
