At last Saturday’s craft show I received order for 2 rings….one is a size 5 1/4 African Blackwood ring and the other is a size 12 walnut ring with turquoise inlay. I made two of each in case I scrapped one out. Actually I made 3 of the blackwood rings and one did blow up on the mandrel.

They are finished with EEE and Shellawax.

I added some shots of the mandrels I use. They go from size 5-12.

Cheers, Jim

Woodturning fascinates me as it’s something I’ve only ever tried one and struggled heaps with the standing.
Jim, the rings a gorgeous sir

Wow! Beautiful work Jim. I love blackwood. I haven’t turned much of it other than for guitar bridge and endpins but it’s one of my favorite woods. Hard as nails and makes Jatoba seem like balsa. Ha!

Cool JJ... but where’s the split for putting it through a nose? So I’m guessing it’s no bull.

Nice rings Jim and the mandrels are pretty cool themselves. Those little turnings are buggers to do.
