G’day All. This is my first posting, although I have had this completed for months.(Slack, maybe).
I learnt to do these rings from this wonderful site. And have since put it into practice many times. However, making bracelets using the same design have become very popular with the students at school. I have many of them asking “Hagrid, can you make me a bracelet… please”?
Firstly, I chose Red Cedar and Huon pine(both Aust timbers) for the first ring I made. I sandwiched the timbers togther, then cut a hole in the middle, followed by sanding and shaping. The first ring I dressed with a vegtable oil, as I didn’t want to upset any skin in may be in constant contact with.
I wont go into too much discription as it has been done before.
Take care, regards Hagrid
PS The first photo of the three rings, has them sitting on a timber called Mallee Root.
