Default Wooden rings

Hi, guys.

I am starting a new project never the less I have a lot of them under progress.

Now I want to make several curtains poles for the windows. Since the prices in the decoration stores are out of my budget I started it by making the wooden rings to hang the drapery. This is the first time I used my new drill press attached to the base I recently posted.

As usual, no milestone so I don´t know when this project will be finished.

Great use of materials. I like those curtain rings and, the way you clamped them for the last cuts.
Just a thought...you might've reduced the diameter of the sanding drum and used it to sand the insides of the rings.

Hi, Gene.

At picture 13 you can see a small taper in the drum. I forgot to write about it.

BTW, Happy father day!!! At least here, nothing to celebrate...

Very clever Alexis.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I made some similar rings (not as fancy though, used scrap plywood) and used a heel clamp to hold the ring while boring the inside hole.

To add a radius to the edges, I used a variation on a method described by Harry Sinclair, but with double ended finish nails driven into the ends of short pieces of dowel, the dowels set into a piece of plywood with a hole pattern to suit the size of the rings, Tap the ring down onto the points, and the inside and outside diameters can have the round-over applied. The downside is that there will be some small holes that will need to be filled afterwards, but they're pretty small. I used the same concept to cut a larger ring out of a piece of plywood.
