Captive Rings

"How did you do that?"

That is always the reaction I get to any turned item that I make that has Captive Rings on it!! It never fails!!

So, the question is, "How did they do that?"... check out these projects to see how to make captive rings and start adding them to any spindle turning that you make for that very same reaction!!

I've seen them on goblets, bottle stoppers, children toys, and even pens. What can you add them to?
