Open Source Wedding Rings

[update 1][update 2]

I lost my wife’s wedding band a few years ago. She handed it to me while I was driving and asked me to take it to a jeweler to get it hammered back “in round”. Of course, I lost it immediately.

My original wedding band I still have, but it’s always been a little unsatisfying. My ring finger is thinner than hers, and the pattern never quite matched where the original jeweler sized it down.

So, for our 10-year anniversary, I’m making bespoke rings. And because I’m an Open Source guy, I had to do it with Open Source Software. And of course, the code for the rings will be open source too.

How much?

Q:
How much wood
would a woodchuck chuck,
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

A:
A lazy woodchuck, name of Buck,
tried to chuck, but had no luck.

A crazy woodchuck, name of George,
chucked four cords of knotty boards.
