Wood Pot Made Out of Rings

About: I’m thirteen live and work at a hardware store. And build stuff when I feel like it. Oh and write Instructables about them. And now posting YouTube videos.

Ok, I'm not sure where the idea came from. Maybe when I was looking at the planter challenge somebody was standing behind me and put the idea in through my ear? Anyway let's grow some ear plugs. It's really simple.

Supplies:

  • 1x6 squares
  • Scribe and pencil
  • Drill and drill bit
  • Scroll saw
  • Sander
  • Stain
  • Paint brush
  • Steady hands

Step 1: Watch Video

Step 2: Cut

Get your piece of 1x6 and cut it in to a square. That's 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" for most 1x6's. I'm assuming that if you used hardwood it would be a lot better? Maybe? If you tried let me know in the comments.

Step 3: Scribe

I used a scribe to draw the circles. Not perfect but I don't really care because it is just pine.

Step 4: Drill

I used a drill bit the same diameter as the scroll saw blade. In this case a 1/8 drill bit. Drill at every line. Make sure not to drill to close to other lines.

Step 5: Scroll Saw

I used a scroll saw to cut out the rings. Tilt the table to 5 degrees. Then cut around 90 percent of the circle and leave a tab to hold it on. Once you finished cutting all of them go around and cut the tabs.

Step 6: Sand

I used a power sander to sand down the rings.

Step 7: Stain

This is optional. It's pretty obvious what to do here. Let it soak in for a couple of minutes then wipe the excess off.

Step 8: Super Glue

I used some super glue to hold the rings together once they where in the right position.

Step 9: Figure Out What to Put in It

You could put anything in it: fruit, plants, seal it off to make a bowel, anything! But in this case we are growing HIGHLY valuable earplugs.
