    My partner and I are eloping over the eclipse… hmmmm… I forgot the rings!

    Fire up the MPCNC!

    Now we can weather the blotting out of the sun/coming apocalypse in style.

    Cheers!

    Cool. If your partner likes the idea of wooden CNC rings, they are a keeper!

    Thanks guys, we had a great time and she’s very supportive of all my endeavors, even impromptu rings!

    The idea going forward is I’ll make a few iterations of progressive complexity, these will just be place holders.

    I think the next ones will be cut from ply I’ll make of gold film, mahogany and some other complimentary wood. Would a two part epoxy coat like what is used on cedar strip canoes be appropriate?

    I don’t know, but I would guess it’s overkill.

    Just oil them.  The epoxy will look like crap on the non-wood parts.  Use cutting board oil, it’s nontoxic, so won’t hurt your fingers.  Would suck to end up like my grandpa.  He was missing his ring finger.  That’s partially why I still don’t wear my wedding ring.  The other part is we bought our rings when I was 20 and she was 18, so you know, expansion….
