  2. Bent Wood Ring Made by My Son

    Kyle, my son, made this bent wood ring for himself. He chose a bent wood ring blank from some I made a while back, then he went to work on it with sanders, sand paper, files, carving knives, CA glue, and micro mesh. I really like the result. He cut the channel for the inlay banding by...
  3. Solid Wood and Bent Wood Rings for My Wife

    These are two rings I've made recently for my wife. The darker one was made from a solid walnut blank and the the lighter was made from sapele veneer using a bent wood process. After shaping was finished, I sanded them to 1000 with paper. Then, I applied CA glue and sanded up to 12000. Have...

  6. 2nd attempt at a bentwood ring

  8. 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...
  9. First go at wood rings

    I've tried to make a few wood rings in the past, mostly by cutting using a hole saw and then taking it to a drum sander to shape it. Well, for my birthday I bought myself a nice bench top lathe and figured I would give turning rings and other jewelry a go. Never having used a lathe before, this...

    My first attempt at wooden rings. My girlfriend showed me a picture of a wooden ring and asked if I could make one for her. I didn't have any idea how to make one, but after looking at a few pictures and doing some reverse engineering I came up with a plan. I started by gluing some blanks of...

  13. Canadian Beach Sand Inlay, Eh Hosers?

  14. Toy box

    I did not take any pictures during the process, silly me. The base or bottom is a 1 inch thick plywood with a veneer on the side facing up. Free turning wheels with locking mechanism are mounted to the four corners. Most of the slats are beech with some being maple when I ran short. I used a...
