A bracelet/bangle i turned out of plywood, i started with four rough cuts of 18mm ply, (very rough as cut it with a hand saw) found centre on one drilled a 40mm hole with a hole saw (four the chuck) and then glued all four together using g clamps then rounded, shaped and hollowed, Could have used a bigger hole saw but i like turning that much i want to turn the hollow out. i then sanded, quick sand of 60 grit, 120 grit and 240 grit, but not too much as wanted it to look rustic just, then finished with a paste wax

That is neat with the grain pattern from the plies. Too bad they don’t make maple and walnut plywood!

I like it a lot.
I just had this talk with a friend the other day, if it is possible to make turnings in ply. I have seen some wonderful French mallets that seemed to be turned from ply.
Best thoughts,

I have made a couple of those, although I don’t turn them (I cut and sand and sand and sand…)
I have a couple of hardwoods but I really like the plywood one. I have gotten more compliments from the ply one also.
Yours looks great!
