Introduction: Can You Make a Ring Out of Wood Shavings?

I made this ring to see if it`s possible to make one from wood shavings and not only veneer like other woodworkers have done.

    great project! toying around with your idea, looking promising. what did you coat the tube with to keep the ring from sticking to it?

    Thank you :D I think that I used some beeswax :)

    This is so different from anything I've seen before. Love

    Novel idea, I like it

    CA is not water proof, so if it gets wet with sweat or wet by some other means the glue will fail.

    An acrylic would be good to use to make it more lasting, maybe use up to 3000 grit paper to get a nice surface before coating in resin, then use up to 3000 again to make it really awesome.

    Good job, keep it up.

    Thank you very much :)

    Yeah i know but I didn't have acrylic nor epoxy :(

    You can do for next time, and you can always add the resin later.

    I think this would be an awesome idea to share with my sweetheart's carver brother...custom wedding bands, layer different shades of wood so the designs stand out! Niiiice

    Thank you :3 I also think that you should share it with your Bro :D I made this rings one for me and one for my Bro :)

    I am planing to try to make more rings from different types of trees like Olive, Mahogany, Walnut, Orange Osage, Oak and many more :)

    it's really cool that you did this but it seems the ring would be very fragile. could it be reinforced in some way with a polymer?
