I tried my hand at making a ring. I have some Padouk, so I cut off a lil’ block and made this ring at the bandsaw and sander. It was fun.

How thick is it? I am thinking about trying it the easy way with a drill press and hole saw. I like the grain in that one.

Nice! I like to do the bentwood style or lamination style for strength though, solid rings tend to break.
Nice first try, keep it up!

Thanks. It hasn’t broke yet, and I’ve been wearing it for a while.
