    Bubinga Ring (thanks Ken!!)

    HI ALL!!
    well havent posted here in a while... been really busy... anyway I finally got around to making one of these... bubinga wood from Ken Fitzgerald (THANK YOU!!!). I tried fortifying it with ca glue to make it stronger... last one I made broke the first day I wore it and I never got a chance to get photos first . anyway We'll see how it does. ID is about 3/4 of and its depth is just over an eighth of an inch. I might try buffing it to make it shinier... does that work on CA glue?? this one was also the first ring I was able to complete without cracking!!
    Comments, critique, throw it all at me please.

    Nicely done Ben! How about a photo of it on your hand?

    I've never used CA as a finish but the pens I've seen appear to buff up nicely but....I'd think you'd have to have some in it to keep from breaking the ring.

    Well done Ben!

    Looks good, Ben. Must have been a challenge. CA finishes buff up just fine. Be careful buffing it...small pieces like rings like to shoot into the wall behind the buffer. (I used to buff jewelry...been there done that.)
