I wouldn’t have known this was Poplar wood unless the tag from Home Depot was labeled as such. I am pretty ignorant to the different wood types by sight, but this was a cool looking greenish grey colored grain. I bought just a two foot by 3 inch length of it because I knew I was going to make rings from it. I also picked up a grinder and a buffer wheel assortment.
I didn’t use the buffer wheel on this ring because I thought I had some buffing compound but I couldn’t find it. I will use it on the next set of rings after I pick up some compound.
This ring was made the same way as the other one, with a hole drilled out of the wood, then enlarged using a Dremel tool, then the outer diameter cut out with a scroll saw and sanded to shape. I used CA on a tip from a couple jocks here, and used my wife’s nail buffing board to buff the finish out. It’s a size 9 and a half or so.
