Rings

Woodturning jewelry is not new. Many of us have seen earrings, necklaces and things like that. But have you considered a wood turned ring?

When I first thought of rings, I thought that they would be fragile. But I'm assured that they are not if you understand how to orient the wood and use good planning. One of the ways that I've seen to strengthen rings is to laminate the wood. Another is to use metal inserts or inlays. And I've also seen wood inlays as a strengthening vehicle.

Knowing that other people have made rings should give you some confidence to try it yourself!!

 

 Turning  a Rainbow RingTurning a Rainbow Ring by Peter Brown
Over the years many people have expressed interest in turning their own rings. The rings were destined for personal use, proposals and even wedding rings.

This month, we're featuring a ring made from colored pencils. The turning blank is glued up before being being drilled to size and then roughly cut on the band saw.

The hard part is the turning since the blank is made from many little pieces. So, gentle handling and light cutting is the order of the day!

And you can see a YouTube video of this project here: http://youtu.be/xPAK_jR-RKI

 

 Turning a Double Layered RingTurning a Double Layered Ring by Antonio Barajas
In this photo tutorial, Antonio shows us how he makes a wood turned ring with two layers, one inside of the other. He makes his wood rings this way to increase their strength. Wood rings are very thin, otherwise they feel too big on your fingers, so the double layer helps them be significantly stronger. There is more involved in turning your rings this way but the confidence that you can have with them is worth the extra work.

In this tutorial, we learn how to laminate some wood into a blank suitable for a nice laminated wood ring. Then one method of turning the ring is demonstrated resulting in a beautiful wood ring that any of us would be proud to own and wear.

 Turning a Wood Ring with a Veneer InlayTurning a Wood Ring with a Veneer Inlay by Francois Audeon
In this detailed photo tutorial, Francois shows us how he makes a custom sized wood ring on the lathe. He uses a veneer inlay to provide beauty by creating contrast to the ring basis wood. It also strengthens the ring sufficiently that he can not break them between his fingers!

To me, he's got a winner!! Now it's time for you to try it out!!
