Last year for Christmas we gave "made presents" which included about 25 pens, 60+ bowls, about 100 pendants, and many things from my wife's loom.
This year I am making bracelets and other things for presents.
This bracelet is from a very old and dead (long time dead) Red Bud.
Drilled center hole to size, Band-sawn to a circle, soaked in thin super-glue to stabilize the wood.
turned a wooden mandrel so the bracelet could be wedge on.
Shaped the bracelet and finished it with sanding sealer, antique oil, and Rennaissance wax
