I really appreciated having a choice of wood. It was made and shipped amazingly fast. It was a perfect Father's Day gift which he loved.

About

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

I am Scott and have been carving my name keychains and such since 1982, selling online (via Etsy) since 2008. I now do this full-time and can concentrate on giving my clients the attention they deserve. The ability to create lasting mementos with my hands gives me peace.

Each of my pieces is individually carved and hand shaped. Due to the nature of wood with its varying grains, textures and colors, no two pieces are ever exactly alike. They are freehand carved using fretsaws, scroll saws and bandsaws. No CNC or laser in my workshop.

What’s in a Name…?
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.

Peace in Wood,
Scott (a.k.a. DustyNewt)

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.
