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.

Nice rings and it’s nice that you’ve finally gotten around to posting. I winced a bit at the fourth picture because it seems the fingers are a tad close to that sanding disc. I’ve scraped a knuckle or two doing similar things. I’m not surprised these have become popular.

The rings are great, but I’m not able to discern the process from looking at the pictures.

Can you elaborate a bit?

Thanks.

Well done rings without lathe. The ring with the sandwitched wood is very good. You have made good use of the grinder for shaping the rings.

Very nice there Hagrid. I’ve yet to get my rings done off the lathe, yet. But I have ideas!

Frank did a nice write up about his non-lathed rings.:

G’day Blokes. I can not take the credit for this type of ring. It was ‘Scrappys’ design that I used. He’s the Master when it comes to these rings. Check out his work at ‘segmented ring without a lathe’, here you’ll find all the instructions needed to complete these rings.

A very beautiful ring Hagrid.

A very good pictorial of how it was made.

You Aussies have some nice exotic wood to work with.
