A failed attempt at making another ring. This ring would've been ebony on the inside and purple heart on the outside.
I'm surprised at how successful the first couple were. Still, since then, I've had a couple of failed attempts - I'd had a couple of pieces of ash break, which isn't too surprising - Ash is an open-grained wood - and it doesn't like being less than 2mm thick. This is why I swapped to using ebony on the inside of the ring for the second ring.
Had it not broken once it was nearly complete, I think this one would have been quite beautiful. I am working on a second attempt using this ebony on the inside and purple heart on the outside.
