Thanks UA. You made a post about wood for making a ring so I had to try it. I made two of very different sizes. The small one is for my wife, the larger for me. I used our wedding bands and adjusted these to the same micrometer measurements for internal diameter. Sizes 5 and 7 I think. If I make more, I'll need to get a ring mandrel.
Anyway, they're made of the burl from the Erica Arbora. This is the same wood I use for making smoking pipes. These two prototypes are to see how they hold up. If they're in good shape after a month or so, I may consider making them for general sale.
Here's the pic:
Hope you like.
