This a Bentwood ring I made, It is not perfect but I showed it to a close friend and she wanted it and said she loved it! I guess that is what matters most, I am still trying to get the kinks worked out doing the bentwood kind.
I am not for sure what kind of wood it is, it came from a sample pack of veneer from Woodcraft. It was a heavy piece of veneer and it had green tones before I worked with it (Maybe Lignum Vitae) ? I think it is a little light in color for that though? I had fun making it and I am working on more to come. I hope I am not boring all the great LJ”s members with rings, It is what I enjoy! Thanks for looking and any comments.

not to worry
how you can do this is amazing

i once made a ring from 1/16” silver and gold square bar

with a nail clipper
and a folding match package
and a small butane torch

clip the gold and silver to length
and rap around a mandrel
4 silver 3 gold alternating bands

using three types of silver solder

i soldered them together
with the highest temp solder
sanded with the striker on the matches
then filled the voids with the next lower temp. solder
till the thirds one filled all the pin holes
(that way it didn’t melt the previous solder)

sanded smooth

it came out great

gave it to a girl too

this is great! Could you explain more on the inlay process? I enjoy your rings. Maybe that veneer was poplar with the green streaks in it? Thanks for sharing!

That 1wood I am in the process to do a blog soon, so I hope to go over the inlay process in more detail then.
I just cut a groove around the ring then put whatever inlay I am doing in the groove by using C.A. Glue.
I cut the groove with Jewlers files ( small files) I do all my work by hand no lathe but you could use a lathe.
I add glue then add the stone on top ,sand, fill with more glue and stone then sand some more. I do use a dremel tool to do this (sometimes) as for it being poplar I guess it could have been it is strong whatever it is.
Thanks for looking I hope this helps, If I can be of any help P.M. I will help however I can. Good Luck!
