since my last post I’ve sold a few more rings, new ones (new sizes) off the one’s I’ve posted on Etsy.
This pair I made last month for a couple from church, who renewed their vows on the beach in Maine a few weeks ago.
Both rings are cut from the same glue up, so are nearly identical in grain pattern and color. Finished with sanding sealer then a bath in walnut oil. This seems to keep the rings from darkening as much from just an oil finish. Cocobolo can be sanded really smooth and buffed using its own oils (as I did with a bottle stopper) but as some people react to these tropical exotics, (I really noticed an effect from the sanding dust the first time, and have since always used a respirator), additional protection for something wearable seemed in order.
To say they were beyond thrilled with these rings would be putting it mildly.
