Support a Ring Mandrel with Corks

I recently began to resell new and second hand rings. But I didn't have a way to measure them till I got a ring size tower*. Standing it up was not possible till I thought of this.

Total Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: 1



  1. Take the corks and hot glue them to the 6 beveled sides of the tower base.
  2. Continue till all 6 are glued.
  3. When the glue has cooled, take the raffia and glue as you go till it's good and tight. Tie it in a firm knot and glue that for extra stability.
  4. Find a lid that is just perfect for the 6 corks to sit in. I found a PB lid and it didn't even need glue it fit so perfectly. Glue on the buttons if you choose to use them. Now I can set the rings on it, showing the actual size, and it's "hands free". N-JOY!!

*Editor's Note: This tool is officially called a ring mandrel.

The peanut butter lid/corks fits perfectly. Glad you are now able to take pictures while measuring the rings too. :)
