I added a Etsy Sales Page for Your Convenience

I added a Etsy Sales Page…

to my blog to make it easier for those who may be interested in any of my ring designs. Simply click on the photo to go directly to my Etsy shop or (click here) to see a sampling of ring designs without leaving my site.

By clicking on the photo you will open a new window with the Etsy,com URL. It’s completely safe and secure if you decide to order.

Etsy allows you to send messages prior to ordering for any question or special requirements you may need prior to ordering.

Once you place your order you can specify the ring size and width.

In some cases you can mix and match materials or colors which can be done before you buy  just by sending me a message. I answer general questions as soon as I get your message through Etsy.

I have found that this process is one of the best platforms to buy and sell products on the internet. Again it is completely safe and secure for you with many methods of payments available.



I’m adding new styles,materials,colors and designs continually so go check it out and let me know how I can help.

Thank You,

Micarta Ring | 6 Steps it takes to build one

Micarta Ring

There are actually more then 6 steps it takes to build a micarta ring. But you’ll get a good idea of what goes into the build.

  1. Let’s start out with choosing the piece of micarta and stainless steel round bar stock that will make up the micarta ring.

Here I have chosen a 1″ outside diameter stainless steel bar rod. For work ability I cut this down with a portaband to 1/2″ wide before taking it to the mini lathe.

Using a 1-1/2″X1-1/2″ x .40 piece of Micarta that was sent to me from another ring maker to try out as the outer skin of the ring.

Micarta is extremely easy to work with both on and off the lathe. It cuts and sand easily without special tools. It also polishes up real nice.

Resize Your Images for your Blog or Website

How I resize my images for my blog.

Today’s post is not about tools or how to make something.

This short tutorial is base on those of you running Windows based computers.

Instead I wanted to share with those of you that have your own blog or website how to resize your images for a blog or website for faster loading pages..

Most people know that a slow loading blog will drive your viewers crazy and most likely will make them move on to another site. This process won’t guarantee these visitors will stay but it will certainly help page loading.

There a hundreds of image editing program out there but I find when I transfer photos from my cameras to my desktop I can change the large image files quickly with out opening a program.

I’m sure if you’ll be editing your pictures the image editing program may be better. This is just quick and easy for me.
