Wedding Bands

Here is the project I have been working on for a while.  It's the reason I needed 4th axis support in the first place.  These are the wedding bands for Kirstin and I.  They are made from Titanium.  The profile of the band itself was cut on the mill, and then the knot work and constellation art was engraved into the surface.  The final step is to polish out the surfaces, first using sandpaper, and then progressing to various grades of lapping paste (silicon carbide grain mixed with oil) applied with a hard felt buff.
These pictures show the knot work common to both rings, and we put the constellation for each others birth months on the part closest to the hand.  These still need one final level of polish, and they will be complete.
