what’s in it?
Inlay accent strip
lots of 5 min epoxy
Quick burnished bee’s wax

it was a fun little project, my sister loves these big wood bracelets, so i figured i’d make her a fancy natural wood one.

really the turning was easy, the hardest part was gluing up my pieces in the right grain direction so it didn’t tear out instantly, actually had to chisel out the cocobolo and re-fit the pieces in the right direction. shaping and sanding the final edge after parting off was time consuming too, but not too tough.
