I’ve been busy starting a new small company that sells primarily wooden bangles but will also get into other items in the near future. Here are two bangles I’ve recently made. The first one is Amboyna Burl over Stainless Steel and the other is African Blackwood over a copper core.

Hope you enjoy them.

OOOOOW PRETTY! Hope you sell a bunch! I’m wondering “How does he put the metal and wood together?” LOL!

Thanks everyone! Love the feedback.

Doc…. you first have to cut a magic wand, dry it and stabilize it, sprinkle it with wood shavings after midnight on a full moon, and whisper abracadaBrANGLEGUY, then use that wand to tap the metal and wood and poof!

If the other items you are looking at doing are this good you should do really well.

Lathe on slowest speed – The finish consists of 4 coats of CA, using accelerator on each coat, and allowing to dry for a little while while it’s spinning. – like 15 seconds, then gently wiping the accelerator residue off, then apply another coat of CA (Rinse/Wash/Repeat) until 4 coats are applied. Then I use EEE with a cloth to polish the CA, then turn the speed up and use Shellawax as a final coat generating some heat but not too much. After that I wipe on Renaissance Wax by hand using a cloth and let it dry then buff it off with another clean cloth.

The CA and Accelerator are applied using small cut up pieces of paper towel making sure I can fold them into 4 and still be as wide as the face of the bangle where the CA’s being applied.

You can get the metal cores from Eric Goertz “Wildwood Design” Bangleguy.com

He’s great to work with
