  1. Bentwood Ring using Macassar Ebony with Crushed Bronze Glass Accent Inlay

    I used a crushed glass accent inlay since the malachite has been doing so well. It is much more subtle than most inlays but when exposed to light it really "pops"! I plan to use this material for full inlays as well for anyone wanting a unique and classy look. I really respect the skill and...
  2. TOOT TOOT! :) Bentwood Ebony Ring with Crushed Bronze Glass Full Inlay

    After some positive feedback from the super-duper LJ contributors here using the crushed glass with transverse accent, I quickly made the same ring using the material as a full inlay. I don't mean to toot my own horn but…TOOT TOOT! :) This new inlay material is awesome as it is translucent...

  4. Metal & Wood Unite

    I am really enjoying mixing the hardness of metal and softness of wood in my rings. Planning to add more metals like 316L stainless steel and titanium to the mix of some new exotic woods. The endless combinations and possibilities will keep me busy and out of trouble for a long time. :)
  5. Purple People Eater - Purpleheart Bentwood Ring with silver glass inlay

    Okay okay, I know…Texas A&M colors are maroon and white but this is what an Aggie fan ordered and who am I to argue? :) The silver glass inlay really snaps, crackles and pops! When outdoors in the sunlight the glass is super brilliant and looks like it's battery operated…lol. Purpleheart is...

  8. Bent Wood Ring

    I started out making the "sandwich" laminated style. After much trial and error I made a few that held up for a couple of months and one that has made it about a year now. But I still was not happy with the strength of the laminated ones though I prefer the look so I found an easy way to make...
  9. Bentwood Ring! Padauk with Silver & Copper Glass Inlay

    After a custom order for an "A&M" ring I was inspired to create one for University of Texas and through local networking had three sold before I ever competed one so I consider myself fortunate to have stumbled across this idea and owe it all to one of my clients. Thank you, thank you, thank...
  10. Spalted Maple and Koa Bent Rings

    Bent wood style Rings. I like this technique because of its look mostly, but sometimes it can be hard to get more than one color in the ring. A majority of my figured veneer does not bend well, but most domestics bend nicely. This Spalted Maple is awesome that it was easy to work and has the...

  12. Wood meet Metal....Metal meet Wood - waterfall bubinga bentwood on stainless steel metal core

    My first bentwood ring with a metal core so be nice. :) Most everyone loves the full grain look of a bentwood ring but some are not convinced just how durable they are even at a narrow 2mm width so…enter the metal ring core. This metal ring core is typically joined together, but I left a gap...

  15. Walnut Acoustic Guitar String Inlay Bentwood Ring

    This is a variation from my previous silver electric guitar string ring. it is made with walnut using a bronze guitar string inlay for a more subtle contrast. To me it has an even more rustic masculine feel using the bronze wire with the sheen toned down next to a similar colored wood. Guitar...

  17. Teak Ring

    I have wanted to try ring making on my old Shop Smith for a while. I recently stumbled onto some teak scraps at a local boat yard and figured that would be good for this. I have a lot to learn, these were just the first two rings I've ever made. I turned a piece of pine for the mandrel to...
