This one is a magnetic key holder. I made it out of spalted maple. The piece was extremely fragile and I had to fill some gaping holes so I used epoxy mixed with some red pearl dust (all the red spots). I then used Wenge for accent inlays. Since the maple was so fragile I didnt want to hang it on the back because I feared screw or nail heads would eventually rip out the back. I made 2 mounting pieces of Wenge with magnets to hold the unit to them. Rare earth magnets were then embedded into the wood. Finished with a single coat of Shellac seal coat and then General finishes high performance water based polyurethane (satin).
