This is my first attempt at making a ring for my wife. I drilled the hole in the middle with a spade bit. I freehanded a circle around the hold and then used a jigsaw table to cut out the outside. I then turned the 1” tall cylinder on it’s side and used the jigsaw table to cut it into thirds. I used my Dremel with a sanding drum to rough out the shape and then 120 grit sandpaper to smooth it out. I put mineral oil on the ring and used my Dremel with a felt wheel soaked in mineral oil to smooth it out more. The wood is honey locust. Overall I thought it turned out pretty good for a first attempt. If you guys have any tips or suggestions they are definitely welcome.
