Bamboo wedding rings

Earlier this year, a couple from Florida asked David to make them a set of Bamboo Wedding Rings.

Jessica and Jake said they'd be happy to send David some bamboo to work with.
The bamboo was salvaged by Jake from their local recycling depot (the landscape 'waste' area where people bring all kinds of wood, brush, leaves, etc to be made into mulch.)
As Jessica pointed out "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! " Jake and Jessica's bamboo rings are banded with Hawaiian Koa wood. Jake's ring is about 10 mm wide and is gently tapered to 6mm. Jessica's ring is 4mm wide.
Thanks to Jake and Jessica, David now has a nice supply of this beautiful bamboo!
