This is my first time turning captive rings. I don’t have a tool for this I just use the tip of my skew, so it is very difficult to say the least.

That’s pretty neat for a first try! Love the spalted wood.
For a captive ring tool, I took an old card scraper, drilled a hole in it, and then took it to the crinding wheel to shape it into a hook, then brazed it to a little square rod of A2 that I had sitting around. Once I put a bur on it, it works like a (charm) scraper, and makes quick work of separating the rings.
My brother and his wife are expecting their first in March, so I’ve been thinging of doing a similar style, and I think I’ll go with a spray laquer while still on the lathe.

I have a screwdriver that got messed up, so I sharpened it to a point and use it as an awl. I was thinking maybe I could bend the tip 90 degrees and sharpen it and use it for ring tool.

Looks great. Inspired me to try one for my upcoming Grandson! WoodGuyScott may want to reconsider the lacquer finish however since this will probably be going into the baby’s mouth.
