08 Joint Design Nº 137

I did some wax pen welding on the ring, including adding some carving wax sticks to make it rounder. Click on any image to enlarge it.

I think my wax pen welds are getting better.

I taped a dental tool with a sharp point to my paring knife. I added a couple of popsicle sticks under the knife handle to bring the point of the dental tool to about the halfway point of the ring, then scribed a line all the way around. I could also have used stacks of various coins to do the same thing.

I used my paring knife to cut through the ring, along the scribed line. It took more than one pass to cut all the way through. Each pass cut a little bit deeper. I did this very carefully.

This is what I have to work with now.
