Introduction: Octopus Key Holder.

Picture of Octopus Key Holder.

Listen. We need to talk. It's not you, it's your keys. Your key situation is out of control. They're squirreled away in drawers, cubbies, and out-of-season jacket pockets. You're like a mobile hoarder with all those keys you carry in your purse. There is almost an entire colony's worth of rabbit feet in there. You need a place to put them. Field strip your keyrings. Create situationally-appropriate key sets. Minimize the jangling. But where to put them?

What you need is more arms. Eight of them. 

And you know what has 8 arms, is a cephalopod mollusc, and LOVES KEYS? The Octopus Key Holder!

Here's how to make one: 

1) I quickly sketched up an octopus in CorelDRAW.
2) The octopus was made with 1/4" acrylic, and a laser cutter.
3) I then took a heat gun to the acrylic to form the legs into hook like shapes. Be very careful when handling the hot acrylic - I advise using needle nose pliers or welding gloves.
