Here are just a couple of more wooden finger rings I made.
They darker one is walnut with a crushed sea shell inlay, my first real attempt at inlay.
The lighter one is cedar and is pretty thin, more like a wedding band.
These are made in the lamination style, I am trying to work out the kinks in doing some in the Bentwood style.
The finish is CA on both of them.

Thanks for looking, I should have more done soon and will post pics of them later.

Here’s a Link to a blog about the Lamination Style Wearable Wooden Rings I make!

Thanks Chris. My sister is the one who loves the sea, and she has many many sea shells. Thanks for the kind words, I’m working on some other inlays I do them all by my self (not the bought stuff) but I’m thinking of using (the bought stuff) after trying to crush stone by hand.

Thanks and I hope to have more soon!

If you ask me , it’s better than diamond rock ring (I know my wife wouldn’t agree).

Hi Theresa, Its really not that hard I do all my work with hand tools except my trusty Dremel tool as for the getting them in a small space Its pretty easy I cut a groove and then secure the crushed mix with some CA Glue.
I have not done many of these yet but I have read alot about Inlays so I’m still working on it.
Thanks for the kind words and for looking.

Ivan, Yeah I like the look and I hope to get better at this, I don’t think it is as nice as a diamond rock but You can get diamonds all over :) They are too expensive for me.
I just like to be a little different !
Thanks for the words and for looking when I get more done I’ll post them.

Your rings are SO nice. I have long admired wooden rings and am still unsure of the process. Just wanted you to know I admire your work.

PS. The crushed shell works works so well as inlay on this ring.

-- Cheers!

Thanks Scott, I have tried on a few comments, to tell my process. Not sure if that helps or not.
I put a link to a fellow lumberjocks blog about it also. (Franklad) Mine are made in the lamination style not the bentwood style. Thanks again for the kind words, I think your work is Beautiful , I wish I had your talent.
