This is new and fun for me. I can not stand to throw away cool knots and weak burly pieces. So I now save them up for the slow times and experiment with adding new mediums. Wooden jewelry is IN.

The first pic is of my standard keychains in Alexandrian Laurel, Bloodwood, Lauro Preto and Cuban Mahogany.

Second… Large Mesquite knot that I stabilized and added some reclaimed turquoise.

Third… Large Eucalyptus burl with turquoise.

Fourth… Mesquite knot (small) with aforementioned turquoise.

Fifth… Amboyna burl/knot, again with turquoise.

Last… Standard Cherry Desk Holder.

Thanks for viewing.

Very nice key chains! What font are you using?

Thanks! I developed this letter style free-hand over the last thirty years. No patterns, templates or devices are used. Each letter combination poses shortgrain risks (= breakage). This style of carving allows me to minimize weak spots. I guarantee my standard keychains to never break.

Here is a video of a keychain being born. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4ZY0ESmMqM

Wow! Watch those fingers! I’d thought you’d use a scroll saw but the wood is very hard and thick and
the cuts are tiny. Excellent thinking.

I LOVE my old Craftsman bandsaw! Thoroughly dependable.

I do occasionally use a scroll saw, but mostly for detail sanding.

I’d have to say the same about my bandsaw. I usually diamond files to clean up after a cut.
I’ll try using a scroll saw next.

Have your say...
