I wanted to make something fairly simple for a change, so I made a few titanium rings with real wood inserts. I've seen people make these types of rings by gluing veneer and all that sort of stuff, but I didn't find the idea very appealing. I wanted avoid using glue and I wanted the wood part to be solid. So the only real option was to make a the titanium ring out of two pieces that have an interlocking snap joint. First I turned the wood rings to size and then I made the titanium pieces so that they fit snugly around the wood part. Finally the titanium halves are pressed together and the interlocking joint prevents them from ever coming apart. The wood is then coated with oil and wax to make it resistant to moisture and dirt. The smaller ring has an ebony wood insert and the larger one has apple wood. Both the metal parts are made of grade 5 titanium. I will most likely make more of these rings. Want one? send me a message and we'll see what I can do.
A new addition to the ring collection. Grade 5 titanium again. This one is fairly substantial yet very light weight at only 7.1g. Inside diameter 21mm, outside diameter 25.5mm, width 12mm.
