    UPDATE: See post #92 for ordering info, color options and logo options.

    Ok so this took off and we now have requests for these. As discussed in the original post I am a complete leather amateur but the community has spoken and there seems to be an interest so despite everything ... they're at least 100% handmade ... you always know due to the personal touches in every piece we call errors .. or shit .. uh .. so yea handmade. Your keychain will definitely be unlike any other.

    I'd like to get an idea on what people would want on their completely amateur made lasercut keychains so I can find the artwork and get the designs made. If you have an issue with black keyrings let me know and i'll order some chrome ones (yeah its's chrome in the picture I had to scavange a keyring) ... but black is cool and i'll have like 50 of them tomorrow so like black please. Also right now I have the brown leather in the photos so if you really need a different color that's cool ... just find some friends who also want that color and we'll figure it out. Or if you're daring just let me know what logo you want and i'll do my thing and figure the rest out. That's kinda fun right? It's kinda like a present ... you kinda know but kinda not really! Trust me it's fun and the best way to do it. Surprises are great!

    FYI these will all be sewn and make by a small mostly Portuguese/French Canadian man in his garage in Northern Massachusetts. It's ok though I do own a Tundra so all good.

    Edit: Although not reflected in this photo (I was excited and took the photo too early so what!) the edges of the leather will be hand burnished so there won't be strand of leather sticking out like in the photo ... yeah you didn't see it there before but now you're looking for it ... it's there you'll find it. Right now since I have no idea what i'm doing other than minimal instruction from YouTube videos, I've been hand burnishing with water and beeswax. Apparently that's how the Amish do it so that's cool. It's slow and takes time and is a little messy but hey it actually looks really good.

    In the future power tools and perhaps petroleum based chemicals will definitely be involved so any relation to Amish craftsmanship will be kicked right out the door at that point.

    So the lasercutting is easy ... the overall design is done just a little work to get the other non-TRD stuff in there. The longer part is the sewing. Now I have no idea with what i'm doing when it comes to stuff I make ... selling stuff others make is my bread and butter. What if we do a limited run of 25 keychains max at $10 each + shipping (which in reality is the cost of whatever the USPS is now charging for a stamp). Thoughts? This would also assume that I can use (or order more) of the leather I used in the demo pic. So no variation on color of the leather just the engraving (TRD, SR5, etc). Also just to be clarify the logo is on both sides of the keychain ... just realized I only took a pic of one side originally.

    Even though I despise them ... Paypal is the easiest method of payment. If that doesn't work for you let me know and we can figure it out ... gold, silver and ammunition are also legal tender :)

    Ok so 4 so far. Let's give it a day or 2 and see what we get. In the meantime if you're in IM me what logo you want to have on the keychain and i'll do a workup and send you a preview. Also I have some more thread colors showing up tomorrow so if you want brown thread, black thread, blue thread, etc let me know and i'll do my best to accommodate.

    I'd be interested in one. Not sure if I'd want the Toyota logo or Tundra Crue. Would love to see what each look like. Would need shipping to Canada too.

    Once I start i'll post pics of what each looks like finished. I'm kinda looking to the community at this point for guidance! Luckily for me it's a great community!

    Anyone else interested in a 1794 logo? As a 1794 owner i'm ashamed that I didn't put in on the poll originally!

    Thank you all again for your responses on this. Never thought a "look what I made tonight" thread would have gotten this type of response. I've committed to doing a custom run of 25 of keychains for a price my wife would scold me for but hey i'm learning here (and doing it in my free time) and you're supporting me in that and hopefully you'll show it off to others and we can go from there. So tell your friends and let's get votes on what i'm going to make in a possibly sweltering or perhaps frigid garage over the next few weeks. New England weather can't make up its mind (it was 62 yesterday and 87 today) but at least i'll be having some fun!

    Nice ... the only one I could ship right now! Gotta find vector art for the rest or have some quiet nights ahead of me tracing lines in Adobe Illustrator if I can't!
