Handcrafted Wooden Rings

1894 days ago by FrankLad | 54 comments »

I received a couple of comments with regards to how I build the wooden rings in my gallery, so I thought this would be a good place to share a bit about my process. This will not be the best-worded blog entry. I’ll just kinda let my mind spill… My very first rings were done in the bentwood style, which involves some trial-and-error, custom jigs, a great amount of patience and an even greater amount of time to achieve the contrast similar to the rings done in the layered sty...

A hand plane, ‘block plane’ size, made for a rounding of 22 cm (app. 4 inch).As you can see Krenov style, and a touch of Japan, at least this was my wish… Time to make the wedge.I wanted the same wood as the plane, and had an old floorboard, that could be used.Cleaned it up, and cut it to same size as the plane iron, so I have a little slip in the ...

"Carving Acanthus Leaves into, Lathed Fluted Columns"
