Exotic Wooden Rings
I want to share these rings that I've been making. I was originally making them all by hand but I recently purchased a lathe, which has made the process much easier. When making these you will be drilling into the face grain. The method I use is to start with a forstner bit to cut the inside of the ring and around the outside with my scroll saw. I then move over to the lathe and slide it onto a tapered spindle to contour the edges and sand. Finish them with super glue and wet sand to polish.

What you will need
Some sort of hardwood (the harder the better) I like to check the janka hardness scale and pay close attention to the tightness of the grain pattern
