Hi all – first off, thanks to the whole community. Trolling on here, i’ve learned a lot.
I’ve been struggling with picking the best glue for a wood ring with a gemstone (polished pink tourmaline) in it. I’ve made a few walnut rings for my lovely lady, used my dremel to recess a spot so that a cut & polished tourmaline stone would fit in it, and have tried gorilla glue and several different epoxies, only to have the stone fall out through regular use somewhere in the 2 weeks – 2 month range. I haven’t tried CA glue, and thought I should ask opinions here before I go and try to lose another stone. I’m using walnut for the ring, and have been finishing them with an oil&wax finish.
Any advice is appreciated
thanks in advance
