I really liked the rings on LJ so I thought I would give it a shot. Here it is, the non-turned method. I must have made the one on the left too thin or I am just too rough in everything I touch, I managed to break it already. Learning by mistakes as usual. I think I might try the bent wood technic next but I am not sure of the seaming, it there a good way to do that?

That is very nice piece off work, is this very difficult?
Thanks for showing.

Those are really cool. Could you tell us a bit about how you make those? What are they made out of?

Good job on these! I like the wood combinations.

With regards to handling seams on bentwood rings – I always cut the ends according to grain/figuring in the wood. It’s actually easier in character wood like wavy zebra or walnut burl, for instance. Your end pieces may be more angled, rounded, or even “jaggedy”. (I never cut it straight across – those kinds of seams are really obvious.) Then just feather it out with fine-grit sandpaper. Hope that helps! Have fun! :)
