    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,

    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.

    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.

    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 !

    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.

    After earlier this year I went through my books and got me a score of images of vintage sailing ships(*), I keep in finding new ways of making plaques with this designs. After trying my hand at segmentation, which kind-of worked, and multiple bevel-cuts,
    which I still have to keep trying until...

    Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my...

    Scott,
    I was shocked, yet most appreciative, of the surprise I found in the mail today. I am truly thankful for the friends I have made on the board.
    We are a small group, but I feel we all would jump in a second to come to the aid of each other. This is my electronic family.
