Here’s a few more Wood Rings I made. As you can see by the first picture, things don’t always go as planned. The point is to not give up. I tried plenty of times before I got anything close to what I wanted to make. Now I am beginning to have more freedom to play with ides like grain orientation and try inlaying a ring for the first time.
The first ring is for my 8 year old niece. She chose Black Limba out of my veneer sampler and I am actually happy with it because the stripes allow for you to have a two-tone bent wood ring without any extra work. The second ring is plain ol’ Walnut, which made a very strong ring. I have found that for bending, domestics like maple and walnut work much better. Some exotics are too thick or just wont bend without breaking. You can start with a easy bending domestic and wrap an exotic around the outside. This makes the angle of the bend greater and less likely to break the exotic.
