I made this for my friend.

Finishing, i use simple oil, to reduce the risk of infection.

Those won’t stay in very well as the center of the plugs need to be concave in shape so that the tension of the ear skin holds it centered.

Look at the site you stated.. Each one dips in at the center.. ) (

Nice work though, regardless.. And for that matter, some cool plugs @ that site.

Yeah, if i have other plugs made i’ll try the concave shape but these one was my first try. But first i need to buy a little “tour à bois” (turning machine?)

je croi que c’est nice, ca me donne envie de percer mes oreilles. Mais je croi que dans ce cas la, elles vont tomber comme Scott a dit, amoins que ils sont concave. Mais, on sais jamais. j’aimerais voir si elles vont rester dans l’oreille ou non. Merci pour ton post, et Bienvenue a Lumberjocks :).

i like the Idea, makes me want to pierce my ears ;). But i think Scott’s right and they will fall out. But who knows. I’d like to hear the result, if they stay or fall. thanks for your post, and welcome to Lumberjocks :)

Ca fait pratiquement 1 an que mon ami les portes et ils tiennent toujours! Mais la forme concave serait la meilleure option

English: Almost one year that my friend have them! And they very well. But the concave shape is the greatest option.

Un tour s’est A LATHE ce n’est pas évident l’anglais. Je suis bien trop vieux pour me percer l’oreille mais ma fille aimerez bien sa.

I’m confused, are they for protecting the ear from machinery noises OR are they for ear piercings???

not for hearing protection – I think the kids call them gauges rather than plugs. They cut a slit in the earlobe and press an object like this in the hole. I don’t really get it either…

Charles, mon ami, your woodworking skills are wonderful and your English is fine.
But, God I am getting old.
I thought tats were trashy enough, this is the stupidest fad ever.
I will kill my kids if they do stuff like that to their bodies.
Now I am officially a grumpy old fart.

In french : c’est tres stupide je pense.
