1740's Trunk Lock

This lock was inspired by the rather ornate locks found on late 17th and early 18th century travel trunks.

All of the locks made by Kevin Moreau are handmade. All of the sheet metal parts are cut by hand with band saw and cold chisel. All of the larger parts such as bolts, lever, padlock shackles, and keys are hand forged, ground to remove scale, and painstakingly hand filed to a warm, visually engaging texture. Each lock is assembled and disassembled several times to assure proper fit and function of the individual parts. These processes are used to maintain a tradition which has not changed significantly since Roman times, when metal locks were first introduced.     Last updated 03-May-2005
