Last summer, I turned some wood bracelets for my granddaughters. Afterwards, a viewer send in a question about how to turn the outside of the bracelet without flipping the workpiece over. With that in mind, I designed an expansion chuck on which to turn bracelets. With the chuck, I can now turn bracelets more easily.
This bracelet is made from tiny wood segments. Three closed segment rings have 12 segments each. Two open segment rings have 24 segments each for a total of 84 segments. Since the wood is left over from a previous project, I’m not sure what the redish wood is (Not Padauk). The light colored wood is maple.
