Smithsonian keychains

Postby Juan Hidrovo » Sat Jan 21, 2017 6:29 am

One of my latest projects.
Set of keychains for smithsonian.
The wood is from a tree named Almendro and it is very hard. Broke many eye bolts. End up using a drill bit to help screw them into the piece. If you hit one piece against another they sound like dominoes.

BTW. The scientific name of the Almendro tree is Dipteryx Oleifera.
Very dense and heavy wood.
