As you know, I like to work with salvaged barn wood, and these next finished products also are made from it. I also like to work with Glaze Coat epoxy from time to time, and I like collecting keys. So I figured out a way to combine the things I like into one piece. The West Virginia or Virginia keyboard. You all that work with this type of stuff know that it can be very messy, and takes practice to make the finished project look good. I seal my borders and any holes with wood putty before I mix my first batch of epoxy. I also put duel hangers on the back before I start the front. In this case, I used old 1 1/4” square nails I salvaged from wall slats and used them for the key hangers. I had enough keys to make six of these. they are all for sale at the shop & already have sold two. I have one for myself that I made a few years back & use it all the time. I rarely forget where I put my keys. A good way to get rid of unwanted keys. got keys you don’t want? I’ll take ‘em.

Paul those are pretty cool. I actually might have some old keys for you. Send me a PM and we can chat. Do you do special orders?
