I’m a 29 years guy from Barcelona (Catalunya). I started in woodworking by accident and I get trapped. I’ve dedicated like an amateur for the last two years. I’d like to start posting and sharing my humble work in this forum, which I’ve been reading for long time ago. This is my latest project. It’s a wood ring made of bubinga and birch shavings with a green Jade inlay.

If you like the finish product I’ll be pleased if you check out the video of this project:

I’ll post more projects soon. Thanks for the visit and for the comments in advance.

Regards from Barcelona!

I’ll be glad if you do that. Don’t forget to share with my your finished ring.

By the way, I normally add comments during the video to explain the techniques or the materials I used. In this video I didn’t. So if you have a question about anything I’ll be glad to answer you here or in YouTube.

Thank you all for the visit and comments. I’ll post soon in this forum newer and older projects.

Regards.

I too would love to know the secrets and techniques if you don’t mind sharing. That is an absolutely beautiful ring.

Great job on the ring and on the video! I must admit that it made me a little sad when I saw you smash that large piece of jade – I hope you made good use of all the little pieces. I spent 10 years working in a jewelry store and would never crush such a beautiful stone.

If you have not seen them yet, you might want to look at the work of two other Lumberjocks: Brett makes rings with a similar method that requires fewer steps to complete. He also has a video that shows his technique. Bentwood makes a lot of rings with stone inlay and you might be interested in trying some of her inlay techniques.

I look forward to seeing more of your work. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry about crushing that Jade but I assure you that it’s pieces will last for a lots of jewelry projects. I’ve assumed that I need to polish some techniques; it’s one of the handicaps of being self-taught.

Thanks again for the feedback and encouragement.

If you have any question about any part of the process I’d pleased to answer you. I’m more comfortable answering question by question due my english level… I hope you understand that.

Regards.

Have your say...
