Here is a walnut, padauk, and hard maple bracelet I made for my daughters 16th birthday. I started by gluing the three pieces of wood together. I cut the rough shape out with a jigsaw, then drilled a hole in the center and cut the center out with a scroll saw. It was almost twice the size before I sanded it down on a disc sander to it’s near final shape. I used a drill press with a small drum attached to sand the inside before finishing it all by hand. I finished it with shellac. The pictures don’t do it justice, and I’ll try to get some pictures of it in natural light tomorrow. It’s maybe my 5th project and my first one posted here. Thanks for all of the awesome ideas and inspiration.

By the way, she loved it!

Nice job Marcos. I have an 11 year old daughter that would like that. Thanks for posting.
