I hate wasting good hardwoods, even the smallest pieces.
So while I make other things and there are little cutoffs, I save them to make rings.
These are two of the latest. The first and second photos are the same ring, all black walnut.
The third picture is a ring made from laminated tropical woods, the names of which I forget. Sorry.
I painted the initial B to look a little like jade. I used acrylic paints.
Both rings are finished with spray clear coat, then 0000 steel wool in paste wax for the last touch.

Great pair of rings. Like the faccets on the first one the best. Very unique. Great job.

Keep it up.
