aw man.. this is awful… I hate it when someone on here makes somethings so cool that I know I will be obsessed to make it.. a wooden ribbon… crap… how awesome is that.

What a neat idea! I have to display my ignorance, however. How did you make the ribbon???

Great job on the ribbon. And I know that elm can be a challenge but is beautifully grained.

Very nice I have wanted to make this for a while after seeing it on the Woodsmith shop show. I have about 35 of them saved on my DVR that I watch over and over. I don’t sleep much LOL Really noce work on this and like others said, the Ribbon looks great as well.
