This key holder hands on the wall and has an embedded magnet. When keys are placed on it, the magnet holds the keys and the keys look like they are floating. I used the ITP shop to design and construct these key holders. This project served as a great project to help me learn how to use new power tools. I used various techniques during the process to get repeatable results so that I could make many, identical key holders.
Miter Saw Setup
Using a stop block I cut each key holder to an equal length with the miter saw.
Drill Press Setup
I used two stop blocks on the drill press to drill holes in the same place on each piece.
Back of Key Holder
Each key holder was fitted with a D-ring and a magnet.
