Picture of Easy Wooden or Skateboard Rings: No Lathe

After many different trials and methods, I have found a very easy way to make rings with minimal tools. These rings are very stylish and comfortable. They take about 30 minutes to make one. I am entering this into the Jewelry contest. It would be amazing if you could vote for me if you liked the instructable. Thanks for reading!



Materials Needed

  • Hardwood: I used walnut as an example for this Instructable but any hardwood should work. Or an old skateboard deck
  • Beeswax and olive oil salve

Tools that are needed

  • Dremel with sanding bits
  • Masking tape
  • Hand saw (not needed if using hole saw)
  • Sandpaper
  • A drill bit that matches your ring size (not needed if you have the hole saw)
  • Clamps or a vice

Tools that are recommended

  • Hole Saws. One that is close to your ring size and one that is just a bit bigger than the first hole saw. I use 1in and 3/4in.
  • A miter saw to cut the wood
  • A drill
Super awesome!

How did you get the much lighter colors and the green band? Thanks!

It is they colored layers on the skateboard deck. You can look at the photo of a cross section of a deck.

That's really lovely! I'm suddenly sad we haven't kept any broken decks :)

Thanks. I found one at a skate park from when someone snaped their board.
