Topic tags/keywords: help ring wood wedding question resource tip walnut cocobolo bubinga zebrawood wenge pine padauk turning veneering arts and crafts

Hey everyone!

So my best friend is thinking of popping the question and asked if I could make him a ring. He wants something that stands out and gas several woods. Anyone have any good advice, instructions or different methods you could share??

I’d sure try and make the surface touching the skin some sort of hypoallergenic metal.

It will also add strength to the design.

Sounds like a fun challenge, keep us posted.

For a wedding ring which you’d like to last many years I’d think hard about getting a metal band to use as a starting point.
I suggest a celtic knot(s) and maybe straight bands at the edges for incorporating different woods.

This one is a good one with a copper band (you could probably use any metal) and would probably last a long time.

You could carve a Celtic knot design like this:

but it would probably be limited to one wood.
