  16. First Wooden Ring

    I saw a few of the rings that Franklad made and was blown away. I didn't think that you could make a ring out of wood that would stand up to any abuse at all. Of course my ring is a little thick but at this thickness it is very strong. I glued it up with tightbond 3 and finished it with general...
