Say goodbye to misplaced keys forever:This beautifully simple peg board for keys is made from two different types of reclaimed French oak. The back board is a cupboard back that survived a fire in a French bakery in the small town of Void in the region of La Meuse, France, in 2002 and is around 70 years old. The pegs are 120-year-old oak from a French four-poster bed that was restored. Deeply smoke blackened, the back board has been rubbed back to bare wood, revealing a lovely hard, pale wood with interesting markings and a gorgeous grain.
Each of the pegs was individually hand carved, a painstaking and time-consuming task that of course included making sure that each peg fitted its allotted hole perfectly - not too loose and not too tight - before gluing and hammering home. Notice that each peg has a grooved head to prevent bunches of keys from slipping off. The piece has been polished with Fiddes & Sons Forest Brown Supreme Wax Polish.
