Wooden Rings

Here's a fun little project that I completed recently.  I've heard several people mention how they made wooden rings and it intrigued me.  I did some research on the different methods for making these rings and thought that I would give it a try.  These three rings were made by laminating three layers of oak and apricot together with the grain of one layer running perpendicular to the next.  This way the ring is quite strong.  I've been wearing one around for a week just to see how it would stand up to the daily grind, and it seems to be doing just fine.  I gave the other two to my wife and daughter who, for some reason, were overjoyed at receiving the gift.  They are really fun to make and a great way to use up all of those little scraps that you may have laying around.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think.


  1. So were they carved, turned and/or sanded into shape?

  2. Hi Tom. The rings were all sanded into shape after drilling out the hole close to the right size on my drillpress.
