Introduction: Recycled Key Rack
This is a neat way to use some extra keys that you may have hiding in a drawer. Lets you organize your keys by using keys!
A quick project that can be done in under an hour.
Step 1: Round Up the Tools!
A person doesn't need much to make this. A pallet board and some screws, a drill with screwdriver bit and a drill bit, 2 pairs pliers, a piece of sandpaper, and a saw. That's it!!
Step 2: Cut the Board to Length
You can make this as long or short as you'd like.
Step 3: Sand
Sand the board to get rid of splinters. Doesn't need to be real smooth though for this project.
Step 4: Drill
Drill 2 holes to mount the board to the wall.
Step 5: Look Through Your Junk Drawer
Find the keys you want to use in your junk drawer. Luckily I saved back a few.
Step 6: Find the Keys Elsewhere
If you don't have any in your junk drawer, there is usually a set like this attached to the pants of a friendly janitor. Just distract him like I did and make a run for it!
Step 7: Brass Works Best
Seems that brass keys bend the best. May want to get a few extras, just in case they break as you bend them.
Step 8: Bend Keys
Bend the keys with both sets of pliers like as in the picture.
Step 9: Screw on the Bent Keys
Screw on the bent keys and you are ready to install.
