My first attempt at wooden rings.
My girlfriend showed me a picture of a wooden ring and asked if I could make one for her. I didn’t have any idea how to make one, but after looking at a few pictures and doing some reverse engineering I came up with a plan.

I started by gluing some blanks of Walnut and Maple together for the out side of the ring.
Glued that to a waste block and started turning. I drilled a hole in the middle of the laminate and started working down the outside.

Then I started on the core. I glued a blank of Maple to a waste block, drilled a 5/8” hole in the middle then turned it to the desired ring size.

Then I turned down the outside until the outer ring fit perfect. then glued them together.

I then shaped the outside of the ring a bit, parted it off, then a little hand sanding to finish it off.

Here is another one I did using this same technique.

After about a half dozen of these I started making Bentwood Rings. I will show some of these in another Project.

Very nice! Are you now making bentwood rings to solve the durability issue of wood rings using the “bored” method? Would like to see that process as well.

Have your say...
