We finally did it - Wood Ring Project!

the raw wood before treatment

Two tone jewelry really looks wonderful

the wood natural grain enhance the beauty of the ring
All the while I think wood should be pair with metal to enhance its grain beauty as well as to make it more elegant. We were planning to make something out from wood only the matter of time. Finally there came this  lovely lady same "taste" as us who want to make the special wedding for her future husband.
I personally prefer Ebony wood but the colour is to dark for the customer.
So Chin went to source for different local hard wood and finally settle with "Chengal". This is a kind of wood with rich resin which means more "tahan lasak" to water. We did some treatment on the wood before going for setting. Chin broke 3 pieces of wood rings before succeed. To enhance the wood grain texture, we applied some wax on it. The wax will also act as a protector to the wood.

Why Chengal hard wood ?
Chengal wood is one of the hardest wood found in Malaysia. It comes with densities of 800 to 1,120 kg per cubic metre at 15%, moisture content. It is naturally durable, containing substances which repel wood-destroying agents. It can safely be used without preservative treatment in all climates. Main uses are in heavy construction and flooring, railway sleepers, door and window frames.
On top of that, every piece of Chengal Wood Carving retain the value over the years, because  it is a piece of art work, not just a piece of wood.

The Most Expensive Souvenir

the sketch from customer using google sketch up and the final 3D art work  

the front view with hand writing font

This is a very special 21st birthday gift for a young lady. The designer is her handsome boyfriend with very thoughtful heart. 
80 x 30 x 2 mm is the dimension of the heart shape key. The base metal is brass with 999 gold and rhodium plating. Due to the dimension, the mould cost was high.  He emailed the sketch using google sketch up which he learnt when helping his girlfriend on some of her college projects. The draft was clear with precise measurements. The only thing unsure was the font and relief part. He decided to use his own hand writing for "JuYi" and "EK" alphabets. Two art works were presented before he agreed on the final 3D results. Today is her" BIG" day, so hope she likes this special gift (^L^)
