Now that I made new bracelet holding fixtures, I could get back to making bracelets. My one fixture I had with me in Arizona broke the first week after making only 2 bracelets.
The first group is made from Osage Orange, Koa and Rosewood.
The second group are all Rosewood.
The third group are all Mesquite. These were interesting to make because the dry logs were full of worm holes . They looked like a Swiss cheese. I laid out a pattern to miss the holes and cut the blanks on the band saw but some of them had holes going across the grain and I left the hole in those for a little character. I may fill them with epoxy and sawdust or copper or brass filings.
I have a lot of this holey mesquite to process….............Thanks for looking…....Jim
What do you think- fill the holes or leave them open?
