A custom wood key holder will be reviewed today but we’ve made tons of these, custom at CNCROi.com means CUSTOM with a capital “C” which means any shape, size, design or material to suit your needs whether it’s corporate or personal.
Unlike our previous video project where I made a moose and forest theme design (video below), this one will be made using Pine instead of Whitewood but the concept is the same.
Now, onto making a custom wood key holder based on the art my uncle loves to make, so the custom wood key holder matches other elements in the house.
The above Pine board above is what we used for this custom wood key holder and the one below is the same after it has been masked, to make clean-up a lot more efficient at CNCROi.com.
I’ve decided to make two identical custom wood key holders, one is for CNCROi.com and the other will be given to my uncle whose design this comes from.
CNCROi.com has extensive experience woods of all species, so if you wanted this custom wood key holder to be made out of something else like Cedar, Basswood or Mahogany, we can do the same as you see in this blog post using that, even if it isn’t even wood such as Corian or Lamacoids.
This Pine custom wood key holder is really coming-out amazing, the grain pattern you see below isn’t the lines produced by the stepping of the laser but the actual grain of the wood that’s a different density than the other wood around it.
When it comes to custom wood key holders, CNCROi.com has extensive experience design through production, in a host of different design and volume requirements.
Making a custom wood key holder is basically the same process regardless of the design, volume or material, first is the design which CNCROi.com can help you with, then it’s production followed by finishing and shipping to the customer.
The custom wood key holder we are making today could just as easily be made into a corporate award or anything else!
CNCROi.com is engraving this custom wood key holder first before CNC laser cutting it with our Austrian CNC laser because we want to keep the precision of our design dead-on until the very last step of cutting it out of the “waste” material.
If you want a mix of images and text, CNCROi.com can just as easily integrate that into making custom wood key holders.
The options CNCROi.com offers you thanks to our custom production expertise, are completely and totally endless.
After engraving two identical custom wood key holders, it’s time to cut them out from the Pine, with the only difference between these being the grain pattern that occurs naturally in solid wood.
CNCROi.com laser engraving and cutting of the Moon is no different from the trees or the island below them.
CNCROi.com is capable of producing incredible and highly detailed engraving designs when it comes to custom wood key holders, here’s an example.
As you can see, your design through production options are endless, corporate to personal, any material, size or shape.
After CNC laser engraving and cutting out the Pine to produce this custom wood key holder, it’s time to remove it from our Austrian industrial wide-format laser and put it on our finishing table.
As you can see, the laser cut all the way through, the goal isn’t to cut through EVERYWHERE but to get “most” cut through, the reason being is that we can technically cut straight through these custom wood key holders no problem but using too much power produces a lot more soot so it’s just calibrating things to be “just enough” to accomplish the goal.
Sanding these custom wood key holders is done while it’s still within the pine board, it is a little loose, but sanding is easier and more precise over a larger surface area than smaller ones after engraving and cutting them out.
On the left, you can see what the custom wood key holder made by CNCROi.com looks like after sanding and the right after taking the saw dust off.
We aren’t done yet though!
These are custom wood key holders, so they need a “holding” detail, as such, using rusty pallet wood nails works perfectly.
There is a slight problem though, they are too long!
So, CNCROi.com uses it’s metal bandsaw to cut them down to size in our shop.
Here’s what the nails look like after being cut by our metal band saw, you will notice in previous videos, CNCROi.com uses an angle grinder and other tools, so there is a variety of options at our end when it comes to metal.
And here is the finished custom wood key holder, it looks fantastic, clear and totally precise!
At another angle, you can see the nails more clearly in this custom wood key holder, I really love making custom “stuff” for customers!
So whether you need a custom wood key holder, corporate award or literally anything else, CNCROi.com is here to help!
The design you saw in this video by the way is from the same uncle who refurbished the cottage you see in the video above, so even highly precise imagery can be produced with our laser just as easily as more “general” two-color designs.
Additionally, CNCROi.com can produce work from plans and live edge and even rounds and disks, so regardless of the look and feel you are trying to achieve, we can help!
So contact CNCROi.com right now for your custom requirements, whether it’s a custom wood key holder or an award.
