I saw a few of the rings that Franklad made and was blown away. I didn’t think that you could make a ring out of wood that would stand up to any abuse at all. Of course my ring is a little thick but at this thickness it is very strong. I glued it up with tightbond 3 and finished it with general finishes satin. It is purple heart in the center and maple on the outside. I sanded the inside for a “wear easy feel”. It was a lot harder than it seems to shape the outside and get it nice and even all around. I think some sort of sanding jig would be in order. Maybe next time…. Thanks Franklad, your an inspiration.
P.S. I don’t read a ton of the projects of others but what little I have seen in the comments that people leave is that they are almost always positive and almost never critical. A little “creative inspiration/criticism” does everyone good. I welcome it on any of the content on my LJ Home. I only say this because I see some things that are just not good and a lot of comments that lead me to believe that people comment just to comment. Which gets boring after a while…
