Cool. If your partner likes the idea of wooden CNC rings, they are a keeper!August 22, 2017 at 2:24 pm #42104
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?August 22, 2017 at 3:51 pm #42113

I don’t know, but I would guess it’s overkill.August 22, 2017 at 5:28 pm #42127
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….
