Another batch of monikers has found happy new homes.

The first is Yellowheart with a Purpleheart musical note. Following that, in order, Cocobolo, Purpleheart, Madrone, Cherry and lastly, a Paduak MiniTag.

Done on an old Sears bandsaw with an 1/8” blade. These are fun to do and everyone loves their names.

I like these. I’ll bet they are well received.

What a fun thing to do, and give. I like the variety of woods, too. Good job!

Love Song

”The words I have to say
May well be simple but there true
Until you give your love
There’s nothing more that we can do

Love is the opening door

Old folks, help the young folks….....

Love is what we came here for
no one could offer you more
Do you know what I mean
Have your eyes really seen

You say it’s very hard
To leave behind the life we knew
But there’s no other way
and now it’s really up to you

Love is the key we must turn
Truth is the flame we must burn
Freedom the lesson we must learn

Do you know what I mean
Have your eyes really seen”

1970 – Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection

Hello dustynewt

A very good job

I like this but I hope this key is out of order because we have with the picture the mark of the key that can open …..... Be careful

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for all the comments ya’ll and DiggerJack?... no worries. This forgotten key came from a forgotten box of forgotten stuff. So, I forgot what it ever went to. Thanks for the tip though :D)

Diggerjacks ~ The keychains are about 5/8×5/8 inch and the MiniTags are 3/8×1/4 inch. Have fun with them. It’ll get easier after a couple hundred. I’ve been doing them since 1982. They are great for showing off a special little piece with great grain figure.

Mrs.N ~ Thank you for your kind words. My photography is improving.
