This bracelet is actually the first one I made but it split when I put it on the jam chuck. I put it aside and made the other one I posted first. Both were the same size. I got to looking at it and decided I would cut it in to and glue it back together so I cut it with the bandsaw. I taped it back together and sawed it a couple of times to get it straight then lightly sanded the edges on my belt sander to even up. Luckily it was thick enough to round out again. I took my OSS and rounded out the inside. I then chucked from the inside and turned the outside. My wife had told me she liked the other one but would rather have a thinner and narrower one. I turned it narrower and reshaped it. I had to use the OSS several times to size it for her arm. If you look real close in the third pic you can see the joint.

Funny thing is I almost threw it away because of the crack and it became the one she liked the best.

I have also repaired one or two bowls with this method. I keep on seeing that I don’t need to throw anything away till it’s sawdust or shavings. Actually with a little wax and the sawdust you can make an excellent fire starter.

Made from cherry and finished with Capt Eddie’s OB Shine Juice.

The Bracelet turned looking great. The sawing and gluing may make it stronger. Good look on your next one.

This bracelet turned out nice! I don’t see a seam here at all! All I see is a nice looking cherry bracelet. And what’s even better is your wife likes it! Nice work nice save Dewayne!

Thanks for the comments guys.

Don’t mean to toot my on horn but I though it “turned” out ok to coin a phrase. I was lucky it was the size it was to start with to give me the room to fix.
