Recently I tried making some rings as a present for someone special. I found an interesting article about making segmented rings without a lathe, so I decided to give it a shot. To get started I bought some 1/8″ inch thick hardwoods from Rockler, including Walnut, Cherry, and African Mahogany. I then glued a bunch of squares together of different timbers, with the grains at various angles. Once the glue was dry I drilled out the center, and used a scroll saw to cut the outer diameter.
