Since I'm a guitarist, I wanted a MiniTag in Sapele wood, but it wasn't a listing. I contacted Scott and he created a sample listing using my name. After that, I ordered one for my girlfriend and she loved it. 12/10 would definitely recommend.

"Conquering the world... one keychain at a time."

Thank you for visiting my DustyNewt shop. The items you see in my shop are made by me. The only exceptions are the hardware used and my vintage items.

The name DustyNewt came from the sociable lizards that abound in my tilty, storm-blown workshop here in Central Florida. They love hanging out on my workbench with me, and are curious about the tools that make the dust that they forage in, keeping my shop’s bug population at a minimum. There are so many varieties that I just refer to them all as “newts”, although real newts are rarely seen... except out by the fish pond.

I have been carving my wood name mementos since 1980. They have allowed me to tour the U.S., doing shows and fairs. Now, I primarily sell worldwide from my little chunk of paradise, via Etsy.

Most of my work is custom. Generally, to order an item with your name, just leave a message in checkout with what you want your item to say. If you have an idea for something I do not list in my Etsy shop, please contact me with a description and woods preferred and I will try to accommodate you.

I carve my names by hand, using a freehand letter style that I've developed over 36 years, with strength and readability in mind. They are durable and I guarantee satisfaction. I do not do other fonts.

To make my woodstuffs, I use; table saws, bandsaws, scroll saws, frets saws, sanders, grinders, drills, routers, fingers, eyes and brain. Each piece is carved individually. No two will ever be exactly alike. No computer aided (CNC, Laser, CAD) devices are used in my shop.

From January through October, I offer discounted prices for bulk ordering some of my wares. The keychains make great, inexpensive and personalized wedding favors, office party gifts and stocking stuffers. For a quote, contact me with the quantity, wood(s) desired and what you'll want them to say. I will usually respond within a few hours.

I do these full time. So, I am able to focus my attention on my craft and providing great service to my wonderful clients worldwide. If you have an idea that I might help you with, feel free to contact me via the Etsy message service.

Peace in Wood,

Frequently asked questions

Can you carve my name?

Yes! At no extra cost, all of my personalized items can be custom made to say what you want, within that item's limitations. Each piece is individually carved to order. Just leave a note in checkout with what you want it to say.

Will my order be here on time?

I will generally carve and ship your items within 3 business days. USPS usually takes an additional 4-5 business days to arrive. International orders generally take 15-30 business days.

Do you have discounted/wholesale prices?

Yes! From January - October, I will discount orders of 5 or more items. Just send me a message with the woods desired and the list of what you'll need carved. I will send you a quote. If satisfactory, I will create a "Reserved" listing for you to purchase.

However, due to Holiday demand, I do NOT generally offer discounts during the months of November and December. So, order early for the best holiday prices.

Do you carve other fonts?

Sorry, but no. I carve my names in a free-hand style that I have developed over the last 36 years with strength and readability in mind. They are durable. Other fonts do not hold up to the rigors of everyday keychain abuse.

Can I order a gift to be shipped to another address?

Sure! Just make sure you put the correct shipping address during checkout. So you can see what you have ordered, I always post a "Sneak Peek" when completed, on my DustyNewt Facebook page and on my website.

Are these keychains durable?

Yes. They are carved from solid hardwoods and will give years of service. The letter style I have developed minimizes "short grain" which weakens the piece. I guarantee satisfaction.
