Not the best picture but here is another test I made practicing to make my best friends wedding ring. Ring is made from walnut, maple and bocote..

This was the result of me attempting to make a bentwood ring, gluing my fingers together, having a horrible looking ring that I threw across the room (this was probably my 5th attempt) and said hell with this I’m doing something different tonight…haha

I’m not a jewelry type person, I wear none and never have, but if I did I would want something like that. Very well done. I think they might be fun to make, I love bending wood.

If this is just your 5th attempt at making a bentwood ring with 3 different woods and such small maple bands, I’m definitely impressed. Congrats on making a beautiful ring.
