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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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.
Step 5: Filler
For a smooth surface I used some wood filler.
Step 6: Sanding Again
Step 7: Painting
I used some spray paint from the hardware store.
Step 8: Finish
Hang it on the wall and use it. Well done!
