I got this crazy idea to make a ring out of an old iPhone 4. I took the phone apart completely and saved all the small pieces. Believe it or not, I bet there is close to 75-100 screws in this thing. I only was able to use one screw in this ring because there were so many cool looking parts I forgot to use them and ran out of room.

This is a bentwood style ring made by cutting the channel and painting it black. I took each piece and tried to place them in a way to make it look like they were all connected. This ring took quite a long time to create, but I really like the way it turned out. I’m sure I’ll be making a couple more with left over pieces to create a few different designs and probably different types of wood.

I made a few other conventional rings at the same time but they have not been finished completely yet.

Apple is probably already preparing the copyright infringement paperwork against you – or they will soon be knocking on your door to pay you millions of dollars for the idea. (Hopefully the second option). LOL

Great job, puts Dick Tracy’s TV Watch and Captain Kirk’s communicator to shame. Thanks for sharing.

How thick is the ring? 47k Ohm resistor isn’t a small resistor. Nice work though, certainly caught my eye.

That cool, never seen one like this. Great idea. We have an instructor that just taught us Advanced Avionics on our fleet of Aircraft that would love and deserve a ring like this. He is above and beyond a electronic genius. Thx for idea.

Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments, this was fun to make.

Hi Mike, the ring is just under 1/8”. Yes the resistor required me to dig a shallow hole so it didn’t stick up above the channel.
