What type of wood are you using and what is your bending process? This sounds like something I'd like to try.
I like the look so far, keep it up!

Thank you all for the kind words. They are made from Sapele and ash.

My secret was I bought a mixer pack of veneer from Lee Valley and worked with that. I will try making then from wood in my shop next.

I use the method of boiling the strips that I have sanded the ends down with. I used sockets from a mechanics set as my form because the sizes vary so much. CA glue for the whole thing and I made a tapered spindle for the lathe for sanding. I also created a jam chuck for doing the inside but that can be super rude on the fingers.

I am looking to find out what others are using to coat these rings?

I will post more pictures when i upload them to my comp.

Woodenfrog What do you coat your rings with? I used CL glue it worked well but was a bit tough to work with.
