This week I want to share with you how I made a copper and wood ring. As usually, the materials which I’m using are quite affordable and easy to find: wood shavings, copper pipe and copper wire from any electric cable. Still, this time I used a quite exotic wood; the Caesalpinia Granadillo (a.k.a. Brown Ebony or Guayacan) which is one of the hardest woods on earth, about 20-25% harder than Ebony. There is no doubt it’s a very suitable wood for jewelry. Till now, I’ve been using the Dremel tool to turn rings which now it’s been set aside for my new lathe which lets me a quicker and precise job.
I hope you liked this project and I encourage you to make any question about it. I’ll be please to try answer those as soon as I can.
As usual, I leave the video of the project. Enjoy it.
