Bangle for my wife

I made her another one but she said it was to wide. She is a small frame lady and likes smaller things. I took some maple and African mahogany and glued together. Turned it to her specks. She was well pleased with this one. Like them browney points. One “atta boy” covers a whole lot of “awww Shucks” for sure.

Made from African mahogany and maple. Dimensions should be to fit the wearer. Sanded to 320 grit. She said she would finish it later when she decided what she wanted to use.

Nice job, Dewayne really like the contrast of the wood you chose. I bet you are top notch with your wife now.
Excellent turning on the bangle thanks for sharing.

Really nice piece. I’ve got to try one of those one day – Heaven knows that I need the “browney points”.

Thanks for the comments guys.

First time I saw the word bangle I too didn’t know what it was. I had to Google it too so don’t feel bad those that didn’t know what they were. Really not that hard to make once you get the hang of it.

The Bangle is beautiful. Nice that your wife likes it. Made one for the wife, but ended up with my daughter. Go figure. You gotta take those brownie points whenever you can get them, then use them on a rainy day.
