Bentwood Metallic Ring




About: I always liked making stuff and when my grandfather showed me Instructables I became an addict. I don't have any degrees yet but I'm working on my aeronautics engineering degree :-P

I love making bentwood rings and I have recently came up with an idea of how to improve them, here it is.

Step 1: Watch Video

Step 2: Materials and Tools

The materials and tools you'll need are:

  • Tape
  • A veneer strip (about 16 cm long)
  • A base ring to work on (it is important that the adges are flat).
  • A sharp knife
  • Sand paper
  • Super glue
  • Toilet paper

Step 3: Processing the Veneer

Soak the veneer in warm water for 15 minutes.

Wipe it and hold in a circular shape using tape.

Leave to dry.

Step 4: Gluing

First sand on of the veneer's strip edges until it is very thin.

Apply some super glue to the base ring and glue the thin edge of the venner to it.

Glue the rest of the strip in steps leaving the ring to dry between them.

Step 5: Sanding and Shaping

Using the knife, carefully remove exess veneer.

Sand the veneer to make it smoother.

*Be carefull on the metal ring inside.

Step 6: Coating

Put a drop of super glue on the finished ring and quickly wipe with toilet paper. Repeat until there are at least 3 layers of super glue, this will protect the ring.

*Although the ring should be waterproof it should not get wet.

Step 7: That's It

Hope you enjoed this guide if you have any questions please feel free to comment.
