How to Make a Wood and Copper Ring from a Pipe Fitting

Posted February 24, 2021 by westfarthingwoodworks

Wood and metal rings are some of the strongest you can make. The beauty of the wood resides next to the strength of the metal. Together, they create the perfect union of function and fashion.
This ring combines the look of copper metal with the beauty of green Teekri wood. The metal is on the outside of the ring, and the wood is on the inside. For the tutorial, a lathe is used, though you can do it by hand if you are patient.
This is how to make a wood and copper ring from a copper pipe fitting. This fun woodworking project combines wood and metal, with the metal on the outside and the wood on the inside. There are complete instructions, tips, and fun ideas throughout the post that will help you complete the project. Enjoy.
You can use any type of wood and metal that you have in your shop, or you can buy something special for the project. The steps are easy, and you can create handmade wooden rings and metal rings from any combination of materials following these same directions in the tutorial.
Some good choices for wood are Ebony Wood, Koa Wood, or Rosewood. Your metal band can also be something else like a silver ring, or titanium ring. Just make sure it’s flat on the inside and outside.
These are slip fittings, which are meant to be used to join two longer lengths of copper pipe into one. They come in several sizes, and these are all 3/4 inch.
This is a perfect size. It’s large enough that you can accommodate most finger sizes, but it’s also not so large that it would feel too big to wear.
