I needed to reduce the thickness of a segmented ring and in the past I just did this with a handsaw. This time I decided to try it on the bandsaw with my tenoning jig. I removed part of the tenoning jig so that it would clear the blade. I attached a piece of plywood with double sided tape to extend the reach of the jig. Then I attached the ring with double sided tape and made the cut. The tenoning jig has an adjusting knob that allows you to make fine adjustments. You can cut very thin rings or cut your own veneer with this method.

When I glanced at that I thought it must be a tenoning jig, maybe mine will get used now.

Great idea, if the ring stays on through the cut it will be great

This was not my idea. I saw or read about this on a woodworking forum in the past. The double side tape works well. I cut 2 maple rings (about 6” in diameter) without any problem.
