Keychain from 4 PG Veneer Layers

A while back I took a photo of a sign my cousin made for his cabin on our family homestead.

  • If you have trouble reading it look at the negative space.

I’ve been wanting to make my own version but decided I’d start by making a keychain. After getting the lettering in InkScape I made the keychains using 4 layers of PG Veneer Maple and Walnut alternated and stuck together front to back.

I created a little jig to help with alightment.

Nice. Just takes a moment to shift focus.

Whoa cool! That’s like one of those cross-eyed shifty puzzles. (What did they call those?) :smile:

Stereograms but I like “cross-eyed shifty puzzles” better :slight_smile:

Nice job! I’ve done jigs to help in assembly and they really do help.

I love that once you see it… you can’t unsee it. I looked at the pictures before reading it and was confused but THEN it made sense. Really neat!

Really, really nice. After admiring the overall shapes, saw the comment about focus shift, the space invaders made more sense–love the use of negative space to create the letters! Kudos to your cousin for the idea, and your great conversion to the keychains!
