These are one piece cores, meaning they do not separate. Rings are available in sizes from 5-13. Sizes 5-8 are only available in 6mm width, Sizes 9-13 are now available in 6mm or 8mm. Sorry, half sizes are not available.

Getting the right hole size for the ring cores is the most difficult part of making a ring since they don't exactly match any standard drill bit sizes The best way to make the core fit is to find the closest (smaller size) drill bit and widen the hole with a small skew chisel or scraper.

    Very good; somewhat too thick; I turn the OD to thinner size.

    Wood ring cores

    Posted by Harry on May 10th 2018

    I recently purchased the stainless steel wood ring cores available at Woodworkers Emporium. To date these are by far the best, most economical cores I’ve found. Due to the thin profile of the core, they are very comfortable to wear. I’lll definitely be acquiring additional cores. Also great, fast service.

    Best I have tried

    Posted by Tim wehr on Apr 10th 2018

    I have been experimenting lately with ring cores from a number of different manufacturers/vendors. The ring cores from Woodworkersemporium are the best i have tried based on design, cost, comfort, and salability.

    Ring core

    Posted by Daniel Parker on Jan 17th 2018

    I like the way the OD is 3 ring for a stronger cement bond to the wood.

    great product, easy to use

    Posted by Brian Lee Roberts on Jan 13th 2018

    I have used these ring cores before and they are high quality and much easier to make rings with. Cuts down on the time it takes to complete a ring by about 30%. It would be nice if the larger sizes were a bit wider, but all in all a great quality core.

    Pleasantly surprised

    Posted by Brad Niemi on Oct 18th 2017

    I had looked at many companies for cores to make some rings. A few points that sold me was the grid like outer diameter that allows for a better adhesion to the wood.
    The very smooth curved inside to make it comfortable to wear.
    Even though the price was higher than many, they are well worth that cost.
