Ring rosary

Hey all,

I am making these ring/finger rosaries for Christmas presents. Any suggestions on what type of finish to use? I will be carrying mine in my pocket - will see a lot of ware.



Mesquite & walnut versions here

Thanks!

God I love Trigger. Inferno Cop is exactly the sort of idiocy they do, It's what makes them so cool. Met them all, great guys.

It "still" looks nice...?? So if it's done with CNC the bar is automatically lowered?

PS - Yes, I'm having a little fun with your comment. I have projects that involve almost every tool in my shop but if one small portion is done on the CNC then to some it becomes less desirable because, after all, all I did was push a button and go drink some coffee, only to come back and find a finished piece all boxed and ready to ship.

PS again - I like the pieces. I would use rattle can lacquer if it were my project. Dries quickly and easy to apply.

Those look wonderful! I like how you went with recesses instead of notches too.

If these are going to be "used as intended", then I'd recommend a nice beeswax or food safe oil finish on them. If they are going to be more for "decorative" purposes, then I also agree with the lacquer. Mesquite and walnut arent particularly soft and are highly durable on their own anyway, maybe no finish would allow them to develop a love patina of use over time? A simple coat of paste wax might be good enough here.

Thank you! The recesses are great, I can spin it on my index finger with my thumb & hold my place - very happy with the design. I think the wax/oil options are best too. Mine stays in my pocket always (no decoration here!). I like the idea of them getting pocket worn.

Use Watco Danish oil. Just drop them in a small container that you have put the oil in and let them sit for a few minutes. I would then take them out and let them drip dry. It's an easy way to finish small parts.

Anyone know how these would hold up if I made them out of spectra ply? Iíve never used it before but the kids might like the colors. Oh yeah they are 1/4Ē thick.

I would imagine the outer ply would begin to splinter and chip away over time, especially if it's carried in a pocket.

Thanks for the the replies! I think Iím going to scrap that idea and go with some Purple Heart and maybe some pink ivory for the girls.
