Welcome to my FlamingFurnace, backyard metal casting blog.

Hi everyone, I mainly focus on metal casting projects using recycled scrap aluminum and other accessories in the pattern creations.
Aluminum is a very versatile material and I would like to promote the awareness of aluminum recycling via different metal casting projects.

Feel free to check my YouTube channel where I provide detailed explanations, tips & tutorials for best backyard aluminum casting methods, homemade foundry equipment & of course the importance of safety when working with molten aluminum.

So remember recycle and Enjoy my blog ;-)

Sand casting Aluminum Key Fob

This is a quick project I made casting aluminum Key fob. I made a small flask and a pattern from MDF. After a bit of metal filing and cleaning it looked really cool. The Key Fob could be carried in the pocket and even be used in case of emergency for self defence or for emergency car window exit ;-). I also combined a bit of paracord for this project the Snake stitch guide can be found in my Paracord Projects blog.

Some late addtion threaded adge to give it more interesting look.


  1. I love this and thanks! I adore DIY projects using paracords and this will be an excellent addition to my creations. I never thought of attaching aluminum key fob to the paracord, but this one will do nicely. I'm an avid camper and I love how the paracord has numerous uses and makes camping more enjoyable. Thanks a lot for this, by the way. Here's one my favorite sites featuring ways to make a paracord keychain, take a look: backpackingmastery.com/skills/paracord-keychain.html
