  • wooden rings

    I am wondering if anybody has ever made any rings out of wood. A friend asked about making a wedding ring out of wood and i am looking for ideas as to what kind of wood to use and where to get it from.

    Wooddust, I was thinking it would be really wild to do an inlay as well as cutting out a ring. That sounds weird, I know(to me anyway) & would be almost impossible to cut the inlay, without cutting the bottom of the ring shank. Don't have a clue how you would do that. Maybe attatch a diamond on the top, HA Good Luck !

          Carole's idea refers to Carole Rothman's (handibunny) method of making bowls by cutting rings of wood and gluing them together; she's done several articles for Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts and has a book published and another one on it's way ( Fox Chapel Publishing - Craft, Hobby, and Woodworking Books & Magazines!) . Personally, if I were making a ring, I'd glue together thin layers of wood, alternating the grain between the layers (making your own plywood in effect) to keep the ring from splitting apart with the grain. If you use different woods, you can make a cool laminated ring, or if you use the same wood to have a solid color. I think the solid color would look better with a darker wood.

          Best Regards,

            Have done that in past, built a anniversary clock out of wood using walnut and oak in 3/16 inch strips, then turned it with the strips on an angle the effect had a great look. Was just wondering about the strength of burls as i have never used or seen any.

              i do rings. i don't have a lathe so i use a conical wooden pin where i place the rough cuts, and use the drill press to do the sanding and finishing.
              for a wedding one, it will be nice to combine the metal with the wood, but i dont have a clue on how to do that,

                    Rolf, Richard Boehl at QTE says the next shipment is expected soon and a new unit will be sent to me. From the comments in this thread it looks like it will be safe to plug the saw into the Festool. I wish I knew what caused the failure. If operator error, I don't want it to happen again....

                    The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
                    I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

                    As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...
