Woodwork genius Peter Brown is pretty good with his hands. He can turn everyday objects into fantastically imaginative jewellery. His most recent creations? Rings made from packs of coloured pencils…
Let’s look at how Peter makes these cool pieces of whittled hand-wear, shall we?
First, Peter’s gets his hands on a pack of coloured pencils.
He arranges them into the exact order he wants.
Glues them all together.
Drills in a finger-sized hole.
Cuts a rough ring shape, discarding the rest.
Then he fires up the lathe to begin refining the ring.
It’s starting to take shape now.
Now to sand it down.
Then he lacquers it to give it a lovely sheen (and prevent splinters!)
Before and after.
The finished article!
