Love the chatoyance of the grain on these!
Mesquite from Texas, paired with mahogany (scrap salvaged from my in-laws deck). The bracelet is just over 2 1/4 inches inside diameter, just over 3” outside diameter. (60 mm inside, 77 outside – if you’re outside the US) by 1 1/4 wide (31mm)

Continuous grained Mesquite, with a band of Mahogany in the center, hand sanded and finished with Howards Feed and Wax – a family favorite concoction of orange oil and beeswax.

The little bowl, could be a nice display stand, or a handy place to put your rings/earrings. it is made from the center of the bracelet, and thus matches perfectly! The notch in the rim is scientifically tested, and confirmed by independent laboratories to help with retrieval of said jewelry placed within. (It’s also a convenient “spontaneous design modification” of what could have been a napkin ring or some such, if not for an errant slip of the chisel whilst turning.)

at any rate you’ve gotta love a twofer project. Two turnings from one, ok, technically two glued-up, pieces of wood.

These are the 15th and 16th projects in my 30 projects in 30 days challenge

Great Pair. Love the ring holder to go with the bracelet. Nice to use the “scrap” from the center cut for something also usefull.

Keep it up.
