Step1. Design Planning to Make a Wooden Ring Holder
When you think of a design of a wooden ring holder, the ideas are endless. Every DIY jewellery artist must do research and planning a layout design of a ring holder that you’ll store them in an organized way. You can plan shapes like a cone-shaped display stand, tree-like ring holder, wooden box, etc. Make a sketch or a digital print and save it.
Step2. Supply Gathering
After you’re done with design planning, let us gather the basic supplies required to make a wooden holder.
|1. Leftover Wood|
|3. Acrylic Paint Colours|
|5. Cup Hooks|
Friends, I have listed out leftover wood as I don’t think we need to hustle for this incredible material that is easily available so all you need to look for places like home gardens or construction sites, homes where you will get leftover wood. Use them to make a ring holder.
Most importantly for getting desired wood shapes out of leftover wood material, I won’t recommend you to try manual wood cutting method as they are of hardwood type. My strongest piece of advice is to get it done from a carpenter or from a place where laser cutter technology is used. That way you will get desired fancy shapes. Furthermore, if you have softwood material then you can use a dremel and cut them into rectangular shape.
Step3. Wood Cutting to Get Desired Shapes
Getting the desired wood shapes to make a ring holder is crucial that can be accomplished by using a Dremel Device. Make an outline on the wood piece and cut along to get those shapes. Dremel is most recommend for professional designers as it saves time and produces better outcomes.
If you want to learn how to cut wooden jewellery using a manual procedure, you can read my blog. Manual tools are difficult to work with as you need to be super alert while cutting wood using a hacksaw so as to not harm yourself. Alternatively, you can get it done from a carpenter.
Furthermore, you can choose to get access to laser cutter technology that is a boon to DIY jewellery designers to get fancy shapes for making a wooden ring holder. You don’t have to own it as they are super costly. Look for places and get access to this technology.
Step4. Wood Carving on Ring Holder
Now that you have the wood shapes available with you it’s time to carve and have fun. You can make a monogram, slogan, name, smiley or any design that makes you happy. Let me guide you, outline a design with a pencil and carve along using a dremel machine.
Alternatively, you can carve wood using a manual tool called a chisel. Scrape it on design and it’s all done. This method is economical but takes a long time as compared to Dremel.
Step5. Sanding Wood
You would not want to use a wooden ring holder that has rough surfaces hence we need to sand well to give a perfect finish. Sanding process can be accomplished in two ways-
- Using a Sandpaper- Use top-notch quality sandpaper that is rubbed on the rough wood surface to give a fine finished look.
- Dremel- Apart from woodcutting, carving Dremel sands well to unfinished wood shapes. You can use the attachment and start doing it from Dremel device. This will save time and performs incredibly.
Step6. Make a Hole
You need the most crucial supply i.e a cup hook that looks like a question mark symbol and allows you ring to hang. Strike hammer to the cup hook that way you can hang your rings. This is a very important step. Also, be careful while striking a hammer on wood.
Step7. Painting Wooden Ring Holder
Paint your wooden ring holder with colorful shapes of your choice. If you want to make your wooden ring holder simple you can leave this step.
Waterproofing wooden ring holder is an essential part that is usually skipped out. Take a thin paintbrush and gently apply varnish to it.
Important Tip: Varnish hardens the paintbrush. To prevent it from getting hardened using a turpentine oil and wipe it from a damp cloth. This will soften your paintbrush.
Step9. Let it dry
Varnish will take at least 24 hours to dry. Leave it overnight and see the glossy effect of your wooden ring holder the next morning.
Step10. Decorating Ring Holder
You can use some sparkling beads, decorate your ring holder and make it more attractive.
Step11. Showcasing Wooden Ring Holder
Showcasing a wooden ring holder is one of the interesting art where you get a chance to use some basic props available at home and learn photography. How exciting is that? Isn’t it?
