This is a wearable wooden ring made from a solid piece of Leadwood lined with Oak.

The tricky thing with these rings is getting them the right size. My method is to wrap the thin strip of lining around a stepped ring mandrel and measure that diameter with calipers. I then bore out (using the nearest-sized forstner bit) and sand the middle of the outer piece of wood until it is the correct diameter – again, checking with the calipers.

that’s awesome – and thanks for the idea for a workable way to line the rings I just started turning on the lathe.
