bracelets of wood
I've been playing with making bracelets. I use a circle cutter in the drill press set at 2 1/8 inch or thereabout, then mount it to the chuck with an inside grip and form the outside. Sand it, put some thin CA on it, wrap tape on the outside, then chuck it on the other chuck with the big jaws and clamp it on the outside so I can round and smooth the insides. Sand and finish on the inside then mount it back on the inside grip chuck ( theres tape on the jaws to cushion the finish) and complete the finishing on the outside. Any rough spots left over can be hand finished.
This one was made from a slab of douglas fir from the scrap bucket.
