This is a wearable wooden ring made in the “bentwood” fashion.
No powertools are required in the process. It involves carefully bending strips of wood into a sharp circle.
The resulting ring is very durable – even moreso than the layered / cut-out rings.
The inside layer or lining is made of Birch and the outside is Rosewood.
It was sanded with 320, 400, 800, 1000, and finally 1500 grit sandpaper to achieve a natural lustre. It was finished with Land Ark penetrating oil.
