When autumn rolls rounds I tend to get a bit more productive in the garage so expect at least some updates over the coming months. I clearly haven’t managed to keep to my very low target of monthly entries but I’ve already got a couple of things in the pipeline so maybe you’ll see a bit more activity from me.
Halloween is on its way so I thought it would be appropriate to make something a little bit spooky. The faint of heart may wish to not read any further, I wouldn’t want to be held responsible for spooking anybody out too much.
This little spooky ghost keyring is made from Rhododendron wood and finished with a little screw eyelet and a key ring finding that I’ve had for months but never got round to using. I gave it a very light rubbing with some Danish oil after sanding to bring out a little detail in the grain.
It was a fun little thing to make and a really easy thing to do yourself. All I did was cut out a ghost shape with a fret saw and drill three holes for the face. I then rounded it off with sandpaper. That’s all there is to it.
