This is a lamination style wood ring, made out of Hickory, Wenge and Grandillio?? I think??
I bought a piece of wood from woodcraft at a discount, it was warped. I asked the salesman what kind of wood it was and he said Grandillio? So I’m not 100% sure but I took his word for it and it is fun to work with and pretty!
The Hickory(Center) is from a piece of wood I had left over from making a walking stick with my dad a few years back. So I decided to use a piece of it.
I really like this ring, I hope you guys and gals do too…I hope I not boring you all with my ring making, It is what I do!
Thanks for looking!!

Logan, I do it all by hand except for my trusty Dremel tools!!
It takes Time, Patience and Practice!

Here is a blog I did on one of my rings, please check it out!

Very nice Robert. I looked at your etsy. Your prices look to be too low.

Hey thanks Rance!! I am still learning about etsy, I was gonna message you about etsy.
I have been working on certain stuff on it since like 2 am this morning, if you did not check out my “about” shop page you should, I have been adding policy’s and all sorts of bio stuff, I have been talking to Franklad a lot lately and he’s helped me a bit. he won’t give up all his secrets to success but he has helped a lot. He said my prices are a little low too..maybe I’ll do what you guys are talking about and set the next ones a little higher!
I may still message you about a few things, if you don’t mind?
Thanks again, for the kind words about the ring and for your input.
