My Key Organizer

A very nice useful and easy project to do. From design to build up it took me a couple of hours.
Made out of Red Hard Wood and Alucopan (Aluminium Composite Material – Plastic laminated on both faces with 1mm aluminium plates) laminated together with 5 mins epoxy. Sanded up to 320 and finished with boiled linseed oil.
Its dimension are 32X90mm and my height is adjusted with the bronze panel bolts (which I cut to size) – in my case to accommodate 7 keys plus the car key loop which is nothing else than a soft drink pull-tap.

Hope you find this project useful as I did
Thank you

Nice key holder, good thing you put the ring on the end, that’s where to hang all the little remotes and gadgets on my key ring.

This is cool, Stelios! What is the purpose of the Alucopan? Clever use of the pull tab :-)
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Candy :D
Well if it was just plain wood the keys eventually will scratch it badly. Using the alucopan or any thin aluminium layer will protect the wood and keys will turn much easier. Besides I think the aluminium idea gives it a more nice look like a Swiss pocket knife. !!!

That makes sense. Are there any spacers or washers between the keys?
