This striking wood Secret Compartment Key Chain is made from sapele wood & Chrome Trim. It has a brilliant finish, strong grain and a very unique appearance. The wood is turned on a lathe, sanded and finished with four coats of polish, all by hand. This creates a beautiful shine that brings out the natural beauty of the wood.  It is a water proof, high gloss finish that is non-toxic and non-flammable after drying. Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance the finish and the wood may darken.

.The key chain has a built in secret compartment. This gives you the opportunity to hide money, toothpicks, floss, reminder notes and more when you're on the go. So you have access to these secrets wherever and whenever you need them.

No duplicating equipment is used in my work, therefore, even with like woods, no two Key Chains will be identical. This Key Chain is truly one of a kind.

Chrome is an extremely long wearing plating capable of resisting everyday wear and tear. Highly recommended, chrome gives you a shiny rich look.

Sapele:

Entandrophragma Cylindricum, commonly known as Sapele, is a large tree native to tropical Africa. The tree is also know as Sapelli or Aboudikro. There are protected populations and felling restrictions in place in various countries. Sapele grows to a height of upto 45 m high (rarely 60 m). The leaves are deciduous in the dry season, alternately arranged, pinnate, with 5-9 pairs of leaflets, each leaflet about 10 cm long. The flowers are produced in the loose inflorescences when the tree is leafless, each flower about 5 mm diameter, with five yellowish petals. The fruit is a pendulous capsule about 10 cm long and 4 cm broad, when mature it splits into five sections to release the 15-20 seeds.

This commercially important wood is reminiscent of mahogany, a member of the same family, with a distinctive figure, typically applied where figure is important. It has a density of 640 kg per cubic meter. It is most commonly used for flooring.

Among its more exotic uses is that in musical instruments. It is used for the top, back and sides of acoustic guitar bodies as well as the tops of electric guitar bodies. It is also used in manufacturing the neck pieces of ukuleles and 26 and 36 string harps. In the late 90’s, it started to be used as a board for Basque percussion instruments.

The American car maker Cadillac also uses Sapele wood for the interior wood trim on its vehicles.
