A while back I made my first wooden ring.
A friend lost his wedding ring and commisioned me for a replacement.
The ring is Walnut with Maple.
It was rough sized on the lathe with tools and then final shaped with sandpaper to roll the edges and curve the interior for a comfort fit.
Finally it was finished with CA and polished.
here are some progress shots:
The box was turned from some Cherry spindle stock i had in the shop.
It was my first try at turning a box and am really happy with the friction fit lid. Sanded to a shine and finished with a quick coat of BLO
I used a wire to burn the detail at the bottom.
