I’ve made a few more bangles and they are much less time consuming than the rings are. These last few are made out of 3 layers and each segment is glued offset for strength and design. The first one is purpleheart and birdseye maple. The second one is cedar, and the last one is purpleheart and birdseye maple. I finished each with BLO and then spray lacquer.

I feel like making bangles has run it’s course for a while. My wife is happy with what I’ve made so far, so I think I’ll move on to other projects.

Thanks guys.

Splinter, I think the next thing I’d like to build is that Arts and Crafts lamp you just made, that thing is just beautiful. Also thanks for the instructions on how you built it, it was very well done.
