What is a bentwood ring and wood ring bending process? June 22 2013

A bentwood ring is a wood ring created by bending thin wood veneers in the direction of the face grain around a form to create an exceptionally beautiful and extremely durable bent wood ring or bentwood ring that will not break like traditional wood rings and can be passed down for generations as an heirloom.   

My specific process involves the ancient art of steam bending wood to any size specified, CA glue to impregnate into the woods grain bonding the veneers as one and then begins the long process of hand trimming, shaping, sanding, finishing and polishing.  The finished product is a one-of-a-kind unique and very durable bentwood ring.
