Guitar Shaped Key Holder



About: I always liked making stuff and when my grandfather showed me Instructables I became an addict. I don't have any degrees yet but I'm working on my aeronautics engineering degree :-P

I have recently used veneer in order to make rings.I wondered if I could make other things with it and I found out that I can. Here is my guide for you of how to make a veneer guitar shaped key holder.

Step 1: Materials

For this project we will need:

- Veneer.

- A saw or a knife.

- Sand paper and files.

- Super glue.

- Pyrography tool.

- A pencil.

- Varnish.

Step 2: Gluing

Start by cutting a few veneer strips at the size you want your guitar to be. Glue the strips on each other and hold until it dries (I glued four strips together).

Step 3: Drawing

Choose the guitar style and draw the out lines of it on the top veneer strip

Step 4: Sawing

Saw carefully around the shape you draw, be careful not to rip the layers.

Step 5: Sanding and Sizing

First use the file to smoother the edges and to shape the guitar better. Then use sand paper to smother everything even more.

Step 6: Pyrographing

After you are satisfied with the final shape, draw the details of the guitar and decide the place for the key ring hole.

Drill the hole and move over the details with a pyrography tool or a welder. What i also did was covering the guitar with foil leaving the bridge exposed, then, carefully making it darker using a lighter.

Step 7: Finishing

Use varnish to cover the guitar and to protect the wood. When it dries, connect the key ring and enjoy your new key chain.

Step 8: That's It

Tell me what you thought of this project in the comments.

Questions will be answered happily.
