jealous. I tried to make a ring out of purple heart, but it kept snapping. Nice bracelet.

This looks really good. Nice work.

Nicely done, it is beautiful, and your finish excellent, especially for poplar, which can appear so plain. What do you use for common inner diameters of bracelets?

Looks great. I would like to try to make something like this. Mostly use hard woods?
