Gymnastics Rings Are Being Sanded (part 2)

As previously posted in part 1 I’m making wooden gymnastics rings from 1/8″ layers of laser cut baltic birch plywood. Of many possible methods my friends have suggested for sanding them, while keeping their circular profile, I’m starting off the first one with the most low-tech solution. I’m hand sanding them.

It is a lot of work. So far, the 60 grit paper is working great at removing the stepped profile and getting a nice, consistent curve.

I joked yesterday that sanding the rings is a better workout than using the rings.
