Cool ring? I could see maybe putting a semi precious stone or inlay on the top ?
Just a thought! I also do Lapidary so that thought came to mind !

That would make a great gift idea, if anyone in my family would wear it. I’ve got a small pile of cocobolo cut-offs that I was planning on using for inlay, but this would be a neat way to use some. Nice work!

Very nice, I agree with RJ, I also do lapidary, so it also comes to mind. Beautiful hand too.

The hand is very life-like.

I love this. My girlfriend will be getting something like this in the future.

What is the incident with cocobolo that Childress references?

I was rolling the dice and saw the ring. I was planning on making some bracelets for my daughter and I think I’ll put a ring in the mix. Thanks.
