The best glue for making wooden rings is actually two glues.

When you make rings form wood, and only wood, you can use wood glue. I recommend Titebond wood glue, because it’s the best for a hundred reasons.

If you are dealing with oily woods, or materials other than wood that you are gluing into blanks for rings, then you need a different sort of adhesive.

Two part epoxy is your second glue that will make nearly any material stick to nearly any other material. If you make a lot of rings with alternative materials, then you will definitely need epoxy.

The best kind is a name brand epoxy like Loctite that you can trust. As long as you know the company has a good record, and they have been in the business for a while, you can typically count on their products.

In general, wood to wood joints use wood glue, and every other joint uses two part epoxy.

Your rings will look better, and they will have a lot less likelihood of falling apart.

Happy building.
