I made all my girls bangle bracelets for Christmas 2012. Maw Maw, Momie, Madeline [5], Bridget [2]. The woods I chose was Ambrosia Maple and Box Elder, but for Maw Maw I needed something special. I had a Walnut burl that had a lot of bark on it. I decided that this would be the wood. 1st one blew up in the lathe immediately, Next few were closer to completion before un-repairable voids showed up. Then I got one turned. CA glue was a big help. This is definitely a “one of a kind” Bark Bangle Bracelet for my wife. My other girls were happy too.
