They say that necessity is the mother of invention and while I don’t claim to have invented the idea of a pint lock, this is the first one I’ve ever seen out of the wood. In addition I love how outrageous it looks with that giant old school padlock on it!
This is made with some soft maple, a small brass hinge and the padlock of your choosing! Just make sure that it’s not too heavy, or you will not be able to keep your prize upright! (mine was right on the brink…)
