Following the success of making my first wooden ring I decided to make more. I used the same reclaimed wood but a different section and I think this was the main reason for the failed attempts today. I tried to work on 5 rings today but they all seemed to snap, normally the wood I used in the previous ring was sturdy and did not crack and snap so it must have been the section of wood I chose. They have all seemed to crack in the same place as well so there must have been a rogue grain. I will have to get some more wood and try again.
