I love bangles! Can you tell? Actually, I love exotic wood. Every time I get a new exotic wood, I make a new bangle! These are from Rosewood, Padauk, Brazilian Cherry, Wenge, Canary, Bloodwood, Sapele Mahogany, Walnut, Leopard Wood, Bubinga, Spalted Maple, and even barnwood!

wow, those are really nice. I never realized that wood could be worn as jewelry.
(course, I’m a guy, so I never gave it much thought)
good job.
How do you sand and finish something like that?

Those are eye catching. The hex nut would be my favorite, but the wavy side ones ae cool too.

Are you turning them first and then cutting the outside? Scroll saw?

What kind of finish do you use for wearing next to your skin?

I would definately like to know what sort of finish you use. I have thought of trying my hand at a few items like that but wasn’t sure on the finish.

Very nice! I think I will need to try some of these for my wife.
How do you like your 17” Grizzly?
My wife got me the Polar bear series for my Birthday this year. I love it!

First I’ll say I love my 17” Grizzly bandsaw. It is the Polar Bear series also. I use the Timberwolf blades and really like them.
The initial shape of the bangle is cut on the bandsaw, the inner circle is cut on the scroll saw. I use my osculating spindle sander on the inside and the rest is hand sanded…...and hand sanded…...and hand sanded.
The finish is a satin water based polycrylic. I’d like to try a wax on them but haven’t decided which one to try. Any suggestions would be appreciated 8)
