First time buying this sort of thing, so I had a bit of learning to do. The responses with help were timely and valuable! I'd buy from Paxton again!
Jewelry Case Lock and Key
Years ago, I built several of of the jewelry cases featured in Woodsmith No. 46 (August 1986). It was a most satisfying project, so recently I decided I needed to build another. However, the original supplier referenced in the plans, no longer carried the locking hardware. But then searching the web, I found Paxton Hardware had a very similar product which filled the bill. Perfect size, great quality and competitive price, so the project is nearing completion. Thanks for a great product!
