My wife was kind enough to give me a Saturday afternoon off from any parenting duties. So I ran out to the shop and to try making my first ring.
Apparently my skin chemistry doesn’t like tungsten rings and tarnished my wedding band. I have been wanting to replace it for years now.
I made this pice by glueing some scrap together
Then drilling out the middle as close to my finger size as I could find.
Then I shaped the outside with a disk sander and eyeballed it into round.
I ran it through the grits until about 800 and did the final shaping
Then I applied 3 layers of CA.
Ran it back through the grits up to 4000 and then my buffing wheel/compound.
I am happy with the results and I will definitely be making more!
