I had a wood inlay in this ring from Bruce Boone (boonerings.com) but decided to have him change it. For the poultry sum of $15 I got this turquoise/acrylic inlay installed....
Cool rodentman ! I'm sitting here trying to figure out how he gets that in there in one piece. Are the two sides threaded or something like that ? I like the turquoise much better than the wood. That color really pops !
I like both versions. Kudos to the company, that is a lot of customer service for $15.00, which would not pay for the labor to inlay the ring, clean polish, pack etc.
Michael, many years ago... I remember playing with some epoxy type resins that you can add powdered turqouise or other minerals and the results were pretty cool, this is how I think they redid RM's ring.
Ps, Michael, it just occured to me that you might be wondering how the wood version was done... I am curious about that one as well.
The ring is milled (machined?) on a CNC machine with an recessed area for the inlay. It's cut from solid bar stock, like Looie. I don't know how he does it. I like the Azurite Malachite inlay as well. Check out his website.
