Cult Classic

You'll never forget to grab your keys before you suit up for a full day of tracking down replicants, traversing the galaxy, or just wrangling your inbox with this steampunk-inspired key holder. Lance Nybye Jr.'s laser-engraved plywood design lets you mod a blase set of keys into a kinetic expression of your retro-futuristic style. The individual gears move in unison, and the movement opens and closes with ease, allowing you to add additional keys when your next adventure calls. Made in San Diego, California.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of jewelry design after a fire consumed their previous business of laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback, but they found a creative way to reinvent themselves. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already owned to make wood laser-cut earrings. In addition to winsome wood accessories, the duo also creates brilliantly designed light switch plates, clocks, and other earthy and artful accents for the home.

My husband never keeps track of his keys, so this is a great way for him to stay organized (if he actually uses it!) It is just a little smaller than I expected, but it will fit on just about any wall space you can think of. Such a great idea for the engineer in my life!
