That is cool Dollis!! I like the ring. I haven't ventured into that yet.

Did you cut it with a spindle gouge or how?

Good job!!

Dollis,
Nice idea on the ring. I never thought of putting one on a winestopper. What kind of wood is that? Looks pretty cool.

Talking

Macassar Ebony is the wood I think. It may be the black and white Ebony the lighter part darkened up a lot when i used the EEE cream.


The majorty of sanding and finishing is done BEFORE you do the final cut to break it free and then you wrap sand paper around the shaft to clean inside of the ring. To clean the the shaft you tape the ring to the top then clean the lower part then the bottom and clean up the top.

Two cent tip. Make sure the tool rest is back farther than normal when making the final cut. When the ring comes free it will move forward a slight amount and may hit the tool rest leaving a few small dents that have to be sanded out by hand.

If you use this tip please send the two cents to my broker at AIG.
