Celtic Knot Gold Keyring 10-LGC D005
Walnut Gold Keyring 10-LGC D015
One of the first items I learned to make on the lathe were pens. These beautiful key rings use a very similar technique and wooden blank. Unfortunately they use a different bushing so I had to make my own before I could create these.
The Celtic Knot products I make also required the creation of a special jig to hold the blank while I cut it to insert the contrasting wood. For me the making of the blank is almost as much fun as the turning of the final product.
