Making these wood rings is pretty simple and can be done without many tools. Basically we’re going to take some veneer and boil it in water to make it more pliable. We’ll then coil the veneer onto itself and bonding it with CA glue. You’ll find these rings are much stronger than just drilling a hole into wood and cutting the outside shape. That’s because we won’t have any weak points with endgrain. There will be many layers with straight grain laminated with glue which will make them very strong and durable. I’ll also show you how I added these accent lines with a contrasting veneer between 3 coils. Let’s get started.

  1. I was thinking of doing this by cutting my own walnut veneer. How thick is optimal? And what would you say is the minimum length? Thanks for the great video!

  2. +Make Something, do you retire the rings because of wear and tear? How could you make the rings stronger so that you wouldn't have to do that?

  3. I'm at wits end. I've tried three times and every time the veneer comes out of the boil it breaks, it's not pliable enough. I've tried three different kinds of mahogany and it always breaks as I try to coil and tape. Should I just go for a two hour boil?

  4. Thanks for showing how to make wooden rings! My brother-in-law cut one out for his wife from an old skateboard. And my husband and I made 2 of them yesterday but were worried about how strong and if they would hold up, so thank you for showing us how to make strong wooden rings.
