I found the wooden rings are really fun to make, don’t take long time to finish, and good as a small gift.
Made more rings, already gave away 3 of them, and missed to take photos of them, but here are some more.

The huge one is for my thumb and 2nd big one is for my middle finger. I have been wearing the thumb ring for about a week, and checking how strong, durable in daily use with taking shower, washing hands, and some usual activities. And the smallest one is for my son, a pair rings with my thumb ring.

It would be really nice if there are little wooden ring case go with these rings. Must be easy to make. I am thinking…

Looking really nice, Junji!

Are you just drilling the insides straight or are you smoothing them out? (“comfort fit”)

I like the contrast on those!

Frank,
Yes, I am using sanding drum like these.
drum

to make the right size inside. It tends to be a bit bigger size fits better than usual metal rings because the rings I make are much thicker.

Vince,

It’s oil, here we call it “E-abura” in Japanese, a kind of sesame oil.

I have got to get me a drum sander and try this. These are just amazing! Love the stacked layers, and the outside of pic 3 shows you can do as much style or just plain as you like.

Haveing lost my wedding ring do to a minor accident working in the yard ( had to cut it off due to swelling)
I have been loking at these rings on LJ’S and wanting to do one for myself.

Thanks for the insiparation to give it a try.

Keep up the great work.

Moai,

Thank you. I don’t know which one is the 4th one you are talking about, but if you meant the 4th pic, the kind of white one, this is for to my mother in law.

Yes, you should try and see how fun this process would be. Yes, there are so many option about the combination of wood, or the shape of the ring. Make sure you really be careful when you open the hole with drill bit, it breaks the whole thing so easily.

Junji,

Now that you have the process refined, can you post your procedure for making these rings?
