I am new to this wonderful wood loving community at LumberJocks and hope you all enjoy some of my recent bentwood ring projects I plan to post in my projects.
This Macassar Ebony wood ring was crafted using the bentwood method with a very thin copper inlay. I created this specifically for men as it appears very masculine to me and has more bulk than a typical women’s ring.
Bending this ebony was surprisingly easier than I had anticipated based on other benders feedback. Perhaps I got lucky as one ebony versus another can vary from what I understand but I did make sure to steam bathe the wood longer knowing it is very dense wood and most likely that was the key in allowing me to bend.
