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 Live Oak that has been stabilized with a resin and completed with gold-plated hardware.

Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) is one of the most common trees in Central Texas. The wood that was use for these blanks come from burls salvaged from a road construction site. The wood is cleaned and cast in resin that resembles alien landscapes. Finding the burls, cleaning them, and then stabilizing them is a time-consuming process.

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.
