I was wowed and astonished by another woodworkers rings and I’ve taken a whack at it before but failed. So I took another whack while watching the hockey game last night and made this ring. African bloodwood and wipe on poly. I love it.

i took a spade bit ( or any drill bit) the width of my finger (3/4”)....then i take a hole saw 1/2” biggerr (1 1/4”) and drill it on the same hole on centre…theres your ring…then sand the hell out of it and finish.

Very nice, I would love to make a ring out of blood wood but the scraps i get are limited. Where do you get your wood from?

Great ring. I have done the outside on the jigsaw. That way you can get it centered or flat toped if you want. You are correct in the LOTS OF SANDING. Nice ring and nice finish.

Keep it up.
