Handmade key chain w secret compartment Calif. Valley Oak w Chrome h/w

Details

This is a key chain with a hidden compartment useful for storing a small number of bills, matches, or toothpicks. Perfect for the house and car keys with a little extra bonus. This one is turned out of California Valley Oak and completed with chrome-plated hardware.

The Valley Oak grows into the largest of North American oaks. It ranges over the hot interior valleys of California where there is a water table within reach of the roots. Valley Oaks grow quickly, reaching 20 feet in 5 years, and 40 feet in 10 years, and up to 60 feet in 20 years. Mature specimens may attain an age of up to 600 years. Its thick, ridged bark is characteristic and evokes alligator hide. The sturdy trunk of the Valley oak may exceed two to three meters in diameter and its stature may approach 100 feet in height.

A bit about of the process of creating these key chains: I start with a hand-selected bit of wood and the bits that make up the key chain. I then spend some time working the wood to be the proper diameter to match the mechanism. Sand paper is applied, through a number of grits, to get a nice, smooth surface. Several coats of finish are applied and buffed. The wood and metal bits are then combined into a unique item.

Beautiful Scott! This was purchased as a gift for myself - after all, I'm worth it! The quality of workmanship is apparent and I can guarantee this set will never leave my side. I've handwritten more letters and notes in the last four days since receiving this set then in the last year - I can't put them down. I completed a review post on my blog at http://tinyurl.com/6m85apk. Thanks again Scott! CRyan
