Not much of a project, but…I bought a lathe last week at an estate sale and have been learning how to use it
I went to a “bracelet” demo at the local Wood Shop this morning and turned these this afternoon
Can you say “future Christmas presents!”

Nice.

A lathe is fun to play with too. I am sure you will become addicted. I found out today that Oregon actually has colleg courses on it. OSU at Corvallis as apart of thee forestry studies.

Great start to an addiction of lathe work!
Got any tips or insight to turning these?

I’ve made four more of them now so I’m an “expert” at it :)
I’m making them to fit my wife’s arm since it probably average. On the last four I used a hole saw for the center hole and chucked it up from there. You can make a spacer to get it further from the chuck to turn it but I just flipped it over a couple of times to get it right
I’m using scrap wood to do these and I just glued up some quarter sawn oak with an 1/8” strip of red cedar in the center, might look cool and I got rid of some scrap
My niece likes gawdy jewelry so these are right up her alley

More like right up her arm.
Have you thought about adding Coriander or acrylics to your bracelet sandwich. Or, grooving them to add the “stone” that can be added with epoxy (can’t remember the commercial name).
I have a bunch of pen acrylic cutoffs that might be cool to add in multiple colors.
