Since I posted the bentwood rings that I made I got a lot of questions about how to make them and how they are made. To answer all of those questions I have made these two videos.

First video is about preparation and what do you need.

Second video is about bending, gluing up and finishing the ring.

Hope that this will clarify the mystery a little and that it will encourage you to make some for your loved ones.

If you do have any questions I will be more than happy to reply to them.

Cheers

Your timing posting these video’s is great. I’m making a Christmas ornament. A little box with a bow. The glue technique will help to preserve the bow over time. You explained the how and whys well. Thank you.

Thank you so much for posting the videos. I have wanted to know how bentwood rings are made ever since I first saw one.

Thanks for sharing your technique.

heavy that was a great video. I have had several people ask me to do a video of how to make my rings but I hate doing videos. so I can direct them to your video. Also I like the tool you made to hold the rings to do finishing the rings. I usually use a pair of tweezers’ like clamps to hold part of ring

My thanks go to you sir! I’ve always wanted to know how it’s done. Let’s just say I was way off with what I was thinking…

thxs Mr. Heavy – these must be “light as a feather” – This method seems fairly do-able. i wonder if Tight Bond 3 glue would work ? I’d like to try this with students > but Cyanoacrylate may be a safety problem – Anyone have a comment about Tight Bond 3 glue as a posiblilty ??
