Stepped out of my “comfort zone” and started mixing carbon fiber with bentwood rings.

Woods used…cocobolo, “smoked” olivewood and rosewood. One using beach sand and acoustic guitar string inlay.

Trying new “ingredients” is my favorite part of working in my shop. What’s next? Hmmm

Good to see you posting. I’ve been working outdoors on a shed for my lawn tractor and wood storage. And it’s been outstanding weather. soon as it’s too cold I’ll get back into my shop. LOL!

Welcome back, Shannon! Gorgeous rings, as usual. Is the second one the ‘smoked’ olivewood? It’s got kind of a leopard print vibe to it! How do you ‘smoke’ olivewood?

Glad to see you back with your beautiful rings. These new ones are (as usual) real beauties.
Makes me feel good to look at their beauty.

#4 is a real stand out.
Well done on all of them.

Welcome Back!

And what a way to make an entrance – these are all beautiful! The sand and guitar string is my favorite (makes me long for a tropical beach and a cold drink).

Best of luck with your new “mixtures” – can’t wait to see more.
