These are my first few attempts at turning rings. I would be grateful if anybody could suggest books or DVDs showing techniques on turning rings or other forms of wooden jewellery. Christmas is coming and the wife has lots of female friends.
There are four different rings:
One apple ring decorated with two bands burnt into the wood and finished with friction polish and wood wax 22.
Two Purple Heart rings one plain the other half the size of the first and a v shaped grove for decoration both finished with friction polish and wood wax 22.
Cocobolo ring box and ring finished with wood wax 22.

Those look great to me, just a question about the finish, wouldn't a tung oil or mineral oil be better? I would think that friction polish would rub off with everyday use.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
