  1. Bentwood Ring (Ebony)

    This particular project is a ring made from a single strip of exotic Ebony using the bentwood method, without the use of power tools of any kind. It was then hand-sanded and finished with multiple coats of a polymerized linseed oil and beeswax mix that provides durability while maintaining its...
  2. Bentwood Ring (Zebrawood)

    Here is another bentwood ring I've made from a single strip of Zebrawood. Came out a bit thicker than I would have liked, because I experimented with a 12" strip as opposed to my usual 10". Will revert back to the 10" again in the future. I'm also looking into purchasing a dremel for...
  3. Nice Amber Silky Lacewood - Made a ring with it

    Same ole steam and bend process using CA as binder and stabilizer. Sanding then micro-mesh. Exterior is finished with Behlen Wood Turner finish and Behlen topcoat. Beeswax polish.
  4. White Tulipwood Ring with Spalted Maple Lining

    I received some veneer samples recently, and among a lot of pretty sheets was this one white tulipwood. I'm 90% sure that dye has been used here but it looks so natural and the white-on-white figuring has transitions that resemble a light bronze metal. I couldn't be happier with the finished...
  5. My First Bentwood Ring

    After much internet research I decided to try my hand at a bentwood ring. I used a simple piece of very thin pine that I had from a earlier project. Using sand paper I feathered each end so they were super thin. After soaking it in warm water for about 20 minutes I wrapped it around my dowel...
  6. Bending Bamboo & Rosewood with Silver Core

    This bentwood ring was created for a client who wanted to match two woods on an existing wooden watch for her husband…I'm lucky if my socks match… :)
  7. Bentwood Rosewood Ring Jewelry

    Bending wood is hard…until it's soft. ;) Not sure how many girls are on this forum but no matter. I have enjoyed looking at many awesome projects here and thought to throw some of mine into the mix. This is my first bentwood ring I ever sold and it was a huge hurdle for me as it took lots...
  8. Macassar Ebony Bentwood Ring

    I am new to this wonderful wood loving community at LumberJocks and hope you all enjoy some of my recent bentwood ring projects I plan to post in my projects. This Macassar Ebony wood ring was crafted using the bentwood method with a very thin copper inlay. I created this specifically for men...
  9. Ole Smokey

    This is actually American walnut that was smoked on its edges for a rustic looking bentwood ring. This was a fun and new process for my bentwood rings and I was quickly reminded that wood does actually burn easily. :) Do ya'll (yes, Texas) like the look? I wonder how other woods would...
  10. Rimu and American cherry bentwood rings

    Recently finished bentwood rings. The darker ring is rimu with a NZ tawa core. The second ring is American cherry with a birch inner core.
  11. Bentwood Ebony Wood ring with Chrysocolla Inlay

    Hi guys! Been a while since I posted but had to share one of my favorite new inlay rings. I love Ebony wood for bentwood rings! Strong, durable and looks beautifully rich. What can I say about Chrysocolla??? Hmmm…..I love it! It captures of beauty of any wood type that I inlay with this...
  12. First attempt at a bentwood ring

    This was the first bentwood ring I made. It's made from birch, which I attempted to stain before wrapping. I only had access to birch at the time and wanted a darker look. Once I started sanding I noticed that the stain did not penetrate very deep (I did not use a pre-conditioner) and as I...
  13. 3 Bentwood Rings

    First off, let me give full credit to fellow Lumberjock "Heavy" (http://lumberjocks.com/Heavy) and his post on how to make your own bentwood ring (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/91767). I don't know how to "tag" him in the project, if anyone else could, I would love for him to see my first...

So, I opened a small etsy shop! here's the first few quality rings I'm proud...

Hope you guys like them and I would...
  16. Walnut Bentwood Ring (Brass Inlay)

    This is the first bentwood ring i've made that came out decent enough I felt I could Share it on Lumber Jocks. It's made from some scrap walnut veneer with a piece of brass inlay that's "pear" shaped. I finished it with two coats of quality CA glue, sanded down to 1500 grit, polished with...
  17. Lord Of The [Bentwood] Rings

    After making my first 3 attempts at bentwood rings, I soon realized what my next would be… And here it is! For those Lord Of The Rings fans, I hope you enjoy! For those that don't know, this is meant to replicate the ring from the movie. I, in know, think that I am even near as good as other...
  18. Sea Gem Ring

    I tried thinking outside the box and added a little twist. A tiny sea shell as the center gem. I really like the top view of it, not as cool from the straight on angle. Really any thoughts would be appreciated, I have very mixed feelings! Lol is it tacky or cool?

    some bentwood rings that I made. Bubinga burl, Leapard wood, pecan burl
  20. First Attempt

    Hey folks! I wanted to make something for my sweet for Valentines day, to let her know that I care. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do. I decided last minute to try and make a ring out of wood. I didn't really research how to go about it but I have watched some videos on bending the...
