I wanted somewhere dedicated for keeping my keys. I bounced several ideas around but finally settled on a Greene & Greene-influenced, tsuba-shape design with extended plugs to serve as hooks. The toughest part of the construction was by far routing the 4 small frame pieces from a template. Last word of advice – make sure you mount it to the wall from the sides instead of the center because the weight of keys will make it teeter-totter.
The frame is primarily out of black walnut with macassar ebony plugs. The frame pieces are joined with floating tenons. It is finished with several coats of Deft lacquer and rubbed out with wax.
BTW, the picture is looking down from the Blarney Castle in Ireland. I would strongly suggest visiting the island if you ever have a chance.
