Some nice rings there. Nice variety.

Shaped by hand I assume? Or was it on the lathe?

Thanks for all the great comments. These were turned on a lathe on a tapered dowel in a drill chuck after i sized the inside first on four jaw chuck to size 7.5 &8.Keep chisels sharp because they will fly apart especially on woods like Wenge .These will be gifted.Does anyone know how much rings like this sell for?

Hi, CMW! Rings sell for various prices, Search Wooden rings or wooden finger rings and a lot will come up.
The Bentwood rings sell for more than the lamination style does, The bentwood take longer and are harder to make.
Franklad(Stoutwoodworks) is a fellow LJ member and he used to make both kinds, now he makes only the bentwood style. Also Touchwood rings(Bentwood) are really nice rings, they are both worth a look!
As for prices check out Etsy, a lot of people sell rings on that site.
I have never sold any of mine only gifted them,Thanks for the info and for sharing.
