This is a solid wood keychain made in the USA. The stars in the constellation are cut out which allows light to shine through, reminiscent of twinkling stars in the night sky. The wood part of the keychain measures 2.1″ x 1.25″ and is protected with a hand rubbed oil finish. The cherry wood is sourced from street trees in the St. Louis area that have been removed due to construction or storm damage — not their timber value. After the wood is hand selected at the sawmill, it is processed through a long series of planing and sawing steps in Oklahoma and then finally laser cut it into the finished product. Because wood is a natural material, there is some variation in the wood grain and color therefore no two keychains will ever be exactly alike. Utilizing yard trees for wood is one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable ways to source lumber as it does not contribute to deforestation or environmental destruction. It also gives a positive outcome for trees that are lost due to disease, pests, or construction, and gives additional positive value to the urban forest. Making a conscious decision to purchase products made from urban wood is a way of showing support for the urban forest and local craftsman.
