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.

Hey Brett, Ima likin this here project! I actually have a bag of curly shavings of different woods just aching to become rings. Funny side note, I’m actually seeing this for the first time on Valentines Day a year later. Peace
