First thing in my head when I started this project was a key holder. So as not to waste expensive wood, I grabbed any available off-cuts. Without any blueprint to follow, I just cut the 1-3/4”W X1/2”T wood to 3 lengths and the final thickness is less than 3/8”. Then I started thinking what shape/design to build and most of the curves I made after the first dry-fit.
Again without any plan what finish to use, I started to stain it. I used Red Mahogany water-based aniline just to get multicolor wood more or less same color. After leaving this project for almost a week, I applied 3 layers of Danish Oil, hand-buffed it.
Dimension : 12-1/2”Wide x 8-3/4”High x 1-1/2”Deep.
Any comments/critics from all aspects are most welcomed!
