Mokume Gane

I followed a link on digg to an article about Mokume Gane and I've got to say, the feudal Japanese have done it again. Mokume Gane is a method by which intricate designs can be made in the face of a metal mixture and the site has some really impressive examples. I guess this adds another technical level to my view of what the awesomest wedding ring would be.

i made a box using the mokume technique when i was in high school. it was such a pain in the ass, but turned out pretty awesome.

Awesome, if you keep that around Senior House, can I take a look at it?
