This raven wood key chain is based on a pattern by Steve Good. I hand cut my key chains (not laser cut) on a scroll saw. I cut the interior image first from 1/8 inch thick hardwood, then glue the front wood to a 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick backing wood. Next, I cut the oval, shape and sand, and coat with urethane. When dry, I fill the image with clear casting epoxy resin mixed with various colorants. After the epoxy is cured, I sand it flush with the wood and finish with a gel wipe on urethane. The smooth front surface of the key chain keeps it from catching on your clothes or other items and prevents the delicate design from breaking or chipping.
The raven key chain is maple backed with walnut. I filled it with clear casting epoxy resin which allows the color of the backing wood to show through the image. I attached a 4 inch long ball chain and a 32 mm split ring to securely hold your keys.
The size of the oval is 1 3/8 inches wide and 2 3/4 inches high.
