These are a few of the items made and shipped this week. I use a 1974 Craftsman bandsaw with an eighth inch blade. Sand to 320 grit.

They measure 5/8×5/8×2-4 inches, and are finished with three coats of lacquer.

The woods pictured are Figured Cuban Mahogany, Cherry, Narra (amboyna), Paduak, Red Oak, Pau Amarello (yellowheart), Walnut and Zebrawood.

Their destinations range from here in Central Florida to Istanbul, Turkey.

Thank you for looking.

I have to agree with Jim, very nice. I had to go look at your workshop to see the saw you do these on, then I took a look at all of the projects you have posted. You do good work, keep it up.

These are neat. Is that a custom design or is there a computer font they’re based on?

Thanks for the comments.

Rajkalex ~ This is a letter style that has developed over 27+ years of doing these. I guarantee them against breaking for life, mine, or until they take my sharp tools away. No computer bytes were harmed in the production of these keychains.
