Bending wood is hard…until it’s soft. ;)
Not sure how many girls are on this forum but no matter. I have enjoyed looking at many awesome projects here and thought to throw some of mine into the mix.
This is my first bentwood ring I ever sold and it was a huge hurdle for me as it took lots and lots and lots of practice to finally create and form my specific bending and finishing process. All you wood ring benders out there feel my pain, yes? Does the phrase practice, practice, practice ring a bell? Well, add another 100 practices to that and then your there. Heehee.
But seriously, I love wood even when it often does not love me back but that is what makes it so rewarding. Ever since that “aha” moment of honing my skills to create these wood rings I have been hooked and now find crafting bentwood rings almost therapeutic.
