Getting used to the new lathe, tons of fun, the corn cob holders are repurposed from new ones I picked up at the store, much cheaper than the kits. The small turnings were just practice, to see how small a captive ring I could make, I did bust a few in the process, and the boxes are just pure fun!!!!

Looking good. You have really turned some small captive rings, I’ve not tried any rings yet, but I will someday.

cajunpen I am new to captive rings, but did learn to use tight grained hardwood, and sand before parting. The small captive rings were turned with dental tools, shaped to undercut, bought them used at the local pawn shop cheap. Turned the handels and used 1/2 inch copper pipe for ferrules. Two examples below. Thanks for the comment!!!!!
