This is my first few attempts on bent lamination on picture # 2 (2 coin rings as well that me and my daughters made), after many failed attempts and one massive Christmas ring making (30+ rings for nieces and nephews, photos on a future post) I got creative and attempted a brass wire inlay in a paduak ring, it looked better then the other rings so it got picture #1, I didn’t make the rules just havta follow them :D, the wire inlay turned out fairly well, the meeting point of the wires are noticeable but by far one of my best attempts so far at this point in time.
Thinking about writing a blog about making bent lamination and metal core rings, gotten pretty good at it, any interest out there?

Looks very nice, and, concerning the blog, I am always up for seeing how others make things happen in their shops. It would be great to see a blog.

Looks great. I’d love to see one about incorporating metal cores or wire inlays.

I’ve tried bent wood laminations to make some rings. I would be interested in a tutorial. Great job on the rings.
