The ring blanks sold on this page are cut from top of the line wood stock and are carefully inspected to ensure your ring projects will be made from the highest quality materials. We have chosen wood species that will look spectacular on a wedding band surface, which is just over 0.2" wide. Blanks vary in size which are noted. Square blanks are sized to make one ring and can be roughed out with a 1.25" hole saw. Blank thickness is approximately 0.3", and double stabilized for maximum water resistance. One blank will make one wedding ring. We are also selling stabilized bangle cores which are approximately 2" diameter x 0.75".
Using stabilized wood is highly recommended for ring projects to ensure dimensional stability of the wood ring blank, and to help prevent wood failure when exposed to water or humidity. Our blanks are double stabilized, which means each blank will have the most resin content possible for durability and moisture resistance.
Curly Cherry:When turned and finished, it results in a beautiful salmon pink to a reddish color. It is generally easy to work with.
Maple: Has an off white color, with hints of a golden brown. This wood has a fine and sometimes wavy texture, but is easy to work with.
Indian Ebony: Has a black coloring to it. This wood is dense and heavy. We recommend using machine tools to turn this wood.
Flamebox Elder:A grayish/yellowish brown, frequently with red or pink streaks. The red stain is produced by the tree’s natural defenses when wounded. Easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Turns, glues, and finishes well.
Honey Locust: A medium to light reddish brown with a light yellow. Honey Locust can be difficult to work with hand and machine tools on account of its density, though it generally produces good results. Turns, glues, stains, and finishes well.
African Podauk: Vivid blood red, toning down to a dark purple-brown with red streaks upon exposure. Only slight blunting effect on cutters despite its heavy weight. Machines very easily. Nails, screws, and glues very well. Polishes easily to an excellent finish.
