EDM 248 Lock

This OLD combination safe sits in our living room as an end table, an interesting piece for sure. It was a gift from an old friend to our then young son who collected coins. It has always stood in the living room, as it weighs 1,000+ pounds (or so it seems). It may stay with the house forever. ;-) PS it is black with gold paint and lots of rust (iron?) but I could not do that justice.

wow - what a great lock to draw for the EDM challenge, and a great talking piece in the livingroom.
I like the way you have done the gold highlights. Such lovely details in a heavy object

Neat old iron. Bet you don't sweep under it very often.

Hi,

I really like your scetch book pages, it's just like I would like to do a schetch book one day.

And this lock is very nice. Neat piece of furniture too!

You have such flair! I was justs admiring your pages - you set them out so well in such varied ways. I especially love the pages with the leaves, where you have written around one image and across another.
