Sometimes there’s no need to re-invent the wheel when you’re working with a classic. But if you just can’t help adding your signature touch, you can always keep a tried-and-true form and change the material, just like Stephan Siepermann did with Locky. The German creator crafted a version of the classic steel locker entirely from wood, translating all the little details like hooks, vents, and slots into the warmer material, creating a new design that’s more stylish, but just as functional as the traditional metal model.

This reinterpretation of the classic high school catchall is perfect for storing household essentials. Ideal for a small entrance hall, a narrow bathroom, or a cozy bedroom, it comes with all the details of its steel inspiration. It’s crafted from 0.40-inch-thick solid oak and required plenty of sawing and gluing.

Locky has a rod with wooden hooks, perfect for hanging towels, shirts, or coats. At the top, there is a shelf for hats, boxes, or smaller items like shoes.

Siepermann has thought of it all; the locker also comes with the typical vents and slots, as well as a lock, all made from one single material: wood.
