Solid Wood and Bent Wood Rings for My Wife

These are two rings I’ve made recently for my wife.

The darker one was made from a solid walnut blank and the the lighter was made from sapele veneer using a bent wood process.

After shaping was finished, I sanded them to 1000 with paper. Then, I applied CA glue and sanded up to 12000.

Have a great day Lumberjocks,

Russ

Thanks, Sheila.

The rings made from a solid block or laminated blocks are roughed out on the scroll saw, too!.

WoodenFrog,
Thanks for the compliment. I’m an admirer of your ring work.
I’ve been interested in making rings for a long time, but only recently took the plunge when my son voiced an interest.

I want to work out the bugs from the process, but when I ask questions of experienced ring makers, especially those who sell them, they get rather tight lipped. So, I’ll be working up some jigs and techniques over the next few rings, and, then, Look Out World, Here I Come!(with rings)

I think this will be a standard item for gifts from now on.

Thanks again, WoodenFrog.

Russ

Russ, If I can be of any help just ask, I share what I know!
They are fun and addicting to make!
Keep up the good work!
Don’t forget to enter them or some kind of Jewelry in the LJ’s winter contest!

As one of those tight lipped ring makers, it looks like you are on the right track! Good job!
