A goblet with two trapped rings was my project for today. The purpose of the project is to test my own design ring cutter chisels. I opened the rings in the handle of two wrenches, and sharpened them to do the job of ring cutter chisel. One to cut from the right and the second one from the left, photos # 3 & 4. The result, as you see, was successful. I am still able to use both tools as wrenches. I’m excited about it.
In fact, I, successfully, cut three rings just in case I loos one. In the end I intentionally break one of them because I needed only two to call it engagement rings goblet.

That is a great piece, Sam. Do you have a picture of the wrench and how you shaped it to do the cuts?

Neat trick using the wrenches. But couldn’t you just turn the wrench over to cut the opposite side?

Oh and the goblet is beautiful!
