A while back I made my first wooden ring.

A friend lost his wedding ring and commisioned me for a replacement.

The ring is Walnut with Maple.
It was rough sized on the lathe with tools and then final shaped with sandpaper to roll the edges and curve the interior for a comfort fit.
Finally it was finished with CA and polished.
here are some progress shots:

The box was turned from some Cherry spindle stock i had in the shop.
It was my first try at turning a box and am really happy with the friction fit lid. Sanded to a shine and finished with a quick coat of BLO

I used a wire to burn the detail at the bottom.

I like this project as it turned out beautiful and the story sealed it for me.

The case in the lathe and the one in your fingers are very different in color. I assume one was taken with a flash.

Thanks! The color difference is from my shop lighting vs indoor lighting against a painted wall. Plus I hadn’t used the BLO in the pic on the lathe, just mineral spirits. I don’t think either had a flash.

Have your say...
