Hey guys!

I made a video to show how I made my wooden ring out of a hand plane shaving.

I posted the project here.

This is the link to the video on youtube.

Thanks for checking it out!

Nice video Brett. The process was well explained.
I would like to see your technique for comparing different dowels to your wife’s fingers….............

Good job with the video Brett. As I said before, I’ve not seen this before, but I do plan to give it a try.. Thanks for sharing.

This looks great. Going to have my daughter watch it and share a little shop time. Possibly a better way to get the ring off the dowel would be to drill a hole in a board and then use it to push the ring off. Thanks for a great idea and a good tutorial.

Picklehead-That is exactly what I did for the first ring that I made. The video was of the second ring I made. I made the 2nd and third rings slighty larger than the first and I don’t have a bit size larger than the dowel but small enough to engage the ring. Great tip, thank you!

Very cool idea.
I have made a couple of rings myself. Have wanted to try a layered or laminated one but haven’t tried yet.
After seeing your way of doing it, will have to break out the old planer and give it a try.

Just because it has never been done that way before, doesn’t mean it is the wrong way of doing it.

Great job of thinking outside the box!

Keep it up.
