Introduction: Easy to Make Key Hook

I was looking for a usable key holder for my home. But in the internet, I found no good idea, so I decided to create my own one.

Step 1: Roughing the Outer Diameter

You need a piece of wood. You can use any kind of wood. I took a piece of an old counter top. The important thing is that it's at least 40 millimeters thick.

Step 2: The Slots for the Keys.

My piece of wood is 40 millimeters thick. So i adjusted the circular saw to cut 30 millimeters deep.

I marked the slots for the keys with a 20 millimeter gap.

Then i cut the slots.

Step 3: The Hanger.

To hang it on the wall you need a hole in the back. It is important to drill the hole between the slots. I adjusted the drill press in order not to drill through the wood. In this hanger i drilled only one hole to hang it on the wall with a nail. But after wards Ii found out it is much better to hang it with two nails.

Step 4: Sanding

In order to make the chipboard nicer, I decided to grind and paint it.

That looks nice! We need something like that, ours have a tendency to wander off. XD
