Hi wooden key buffs.
I made my first wooden key.. I split off a piece of walnut off some fire wood with an axe
Smoothed it down to about 1/8th inch, with my old hand plane, cut in a slot with a dremel wheel.

Here it is against the piece of wood that I split it from.
Still needs a bit of steel wool for finish, but I'm happy. Gone is that fake carbon fibre weave.

No plans of making any for others, don't want to hone in on your business. My way takes too long.

Hope you like!
