But where do your keys go?


#1

Hey all!

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a good project going on the :glowforge: (I’m in new dad mode for baby #2, so I don’t have much time around here). My best friend just had his birthday so I decided to make him this:

Yes, Back to the Future. It was the most appropriate quote I could think of for an off-roading themed key holder.

If anyone is interested, inspiration comes from @makesomething 's weiner dog art video (Turning Hand Painted Art into a Magical 3D Sculpture). I took an old Land Cruiser ad into Inkscape and used the Multi Scan mode of the trace bitmap tool to get 3 stacked layers (outline, grey and black), so I could take advantage of the two :proofgrade: engrave darkness’s

Hope you like it!

Love the look and way you combined the two engraving shades. Nice job!!!

Brilliant idea for the layered art. It came out great!


#5

This is such a great project. I’m going to have to put this on my to design list too. Except the woman has a Renault Kadjar and the keyfob doesn’t have a ring or anywhere to connect a ring… So it will need a shelf!

Thank you!


#7

Haha! Thanks!


#8

Thanks, got to give props to @makesomething , it’s a very cool technique

Ooo, I thought about a little shelf but didn’t have the time to implement it. Can’t wait to see yours!

Looks great, and very appropriate. :smile:

#13

Looks great! Love the 3D-ness of it.

Really great work! Very near and dear to my heat as I grew up in a Landcruiser.
