One oak, one walnut.

were made using holesaws!!!!!. just drilled the inner followed by the outer (you need to do this on a drill press).

finished with tung oil.

i know that there are weak points where it is endgrain. I will try to make one with 3 layers 90 degreed to each other and maybe wrapped one as well (have to find out how). these are surprisingly strong although they are really thin.

I just had to find something to do that does not require gluing. the temperature in the garage is under 8 degrees Celsius and almost nothing glues right.

Great way to make a ring. Couldn’t you laminate layers oriented to address the endgrain problem. I would think you could use polyurethane glue which is waterproof, or is that a no no?

Mateo – In New Zealand. we are having now another Anthartic blast…. usually its not too bad, but this year is COLD.

John – I will.

stefang – Thats what I meant by saying “I will try to make one with 3 layers 90 degreed to each other”. but bending involves hot water or steam and this sounds really good in this season. Does poly works when its really cold? I must confess i don’t really like working with it. super messy, expensive and goes bad in the bottle pretty quickly.

Very nice bracelets. I am going to have to try and make a match for my ring this way.

Thanks for the idea.

Keep it up.
