I made this as a gift for my wife’s birthday, which is today.
It’s a pattern from our own “scrollgirl”, Sheila Landry. I think the original was around four inches long, but I scaled this down to only two and half inches.
I made sure to cut with the running grain for some added strength as well as keep the key 1/4” thick – hope that will prevent any breaks!
I soaked the key in lemon oil and then some spray lacquer for a shine.
By the way, she loved it. :-)
