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.
