Bentwood rings

Its been some time since I had a project that requires bending wood. Since I have some spare time I decided to make some sample rings and show them to my family members so that each can chose. When I know who likes what I will make the rings to size and give them for Christmas. Who knows, maybe I will sell some too.

These rings are made from (by picture order):

1. Satin Walnut
2. Walnut on the inside and Maple on the outside
3. Walnut – the flash from camera changed the color a little bit
4. Zanzibar Ebony – very interesting wood
5. Macassar Ebony
6. This is some really nice Apple wood but sadly I forgot to which specie it belongs to

Each of these rings have very durable finish on them and as all bentwood rings they are very durable.

Very nice work on these bentwood rings! That Zanzibar Ebony is new to me. I love the color and grain pattern. Is it more difficult to find and bend than the Macassar?

@ Bentwood – the Zanzibar Ebony is quite rare to find (that’s what they told me). I had luck since the company that I am buying from also makes veneers and they struck gold with few logs. Of course not whole log is like this. Just a portion. The texture is amazing and the ring doesn’t even show the whole beauty of it (it is just a sample). It is very easy to bend compared to Macassar Ebony.

@RPCV – You actually bend longer piece so you get stronger and more durable ring. I think there is a thread on LJ that can visually explain this to you.
