Project Information

Yes, I know, it's another candle stick holder… What can I say, I'm on a roll! (I'll yank myself out of my comfort zone soon enough). This is the first time attempting a floating ring, this thing is about 12" long, made it out of Tigre Caspi wood - I've never heard of this kind of wood before. Believe it or not that blank was a birthday gift! I used my bowl gouge most of the time, my parting tool for the steps and the angled tool (I forgot the name) for the ring and other smoothing and design work.

The ring actually broke when I was still turning it, thankfully it broke so cleanly that I was able to glue it back together, but there is still a little ridge on one end :/. Live and learn, right? After getting everything in the shape I wanted, I padded the ring with some paper towels to finish sanding and waxing everything, I didn't use any stains.

Well done. Very interesting piece of wood. Yep, rings will break but now you know the secrete to intertwined captive rings. I turn more captive rings than I need and if one breaks, I'm still ok and if it don't tnen I break it off when I'm done.

i considered the floating ring a great challenge as a turner when I started out. I made several baby rattles for friend's babies.
Nice job
