These are some rings I made from the scraps laying around the lathe. The one on the right is Osage Orange and the other two are 2-tone Acacia ( some heart and some sap wood in them). One is a size 4 1/2, one is 4 3/4 and one is a size 5. They are finished with clear gloss lacquer.

I met this little girl named Harley whose mother had the booth next to mine. Harley wanted a ring but the ones in the shop sponsoring the craft sale were all too big. Her mother said she was a 4 1/2 size. I have never made one that small back home and my mandrels don’t go that small… I made a wood mandrel last night to get by.

They are coming to the sale in our park this Saturday and she can have all the rings for herself and some friends.

Cheers, Jim

Sweet rings Jim. She’ll be a happy little girl. That could be very promotional for selling more.

Very beautiful rings Jim. They look great and very kind of you to make a Little Girl Happy.
Very clever of you to make a wooden mandrel

Also I can see how small the Rings are, the way you have them lined up on a pencil.
Very nice finish too…....Well Done!!!!!!

Thank you all for the nice comments. Little Harley really liked them and was surprised that I made all 3 for her.

Cheers, Jim
