Just finished 26 stocking stuffers. I used the alternative design shown in Wood Magazine’s November, 2007 (No. 180) issue. For wood I used thin rips of hard maple, cherry, mahogany and a short cutoff of cedar I had laying around. Working on tiny projects like these really makes you work hard to get every joint as tight as you can. By slicing each key chain off in the end with the bandsaw I didn’t lose much to saw kerf and ended up with far more then I originally planned.

Those are really quite nice. They look much more complicated when finished.
