'nother question for those of you who've made these - do they lay flat against your finger?  in the pictures it shows a ridge on the inside... can you see the ridge when it's on?

i care about you a homemade oven mitt's worth.

it depends on how far you hammer and grind. the ones I made wound up not having that ridge at all, I hammered it till it was the size I wanted it to be, the ground down the inside until the ridge wasn't there but you could still see the words

Very cool! I was researching these recently. I'm hoping to make some to sell in the future. To ensure that I will stay out of the US Mint's way, I'm planning on using the fifty cent pieces that are no longer in circulation. That seems the safest way. However...in all my research on the laws of coins, it says that defacing money for the purpose of recirculating it for gain is illegal. So in other words, somehow magically making a penny into a quarter or the much more feasible act of making a $10 bill into a $20.

So craft on!

these things are so cool.  I saw the tutorial a while ago and started working on one made out of a new quarter (1990), but temporarily gave up because i didn't have the patience to finish it.  I think I'll go find it and start working on it again, and maybe I'll actually finish this time.  Out of curiosity, any opinions on whether this would work better or worse than quarters with pennies, nickels, or dimes (aside from the fact that they'd be smaller)?

I  too haven't finished grinding out the inside of mine yet. But I have pretty small fingers, and I don't think anything smaller than a quater would be big enough to make an adult ring. Maybe a nickle, if you had really small fingers. Even then I'm not sure.

i just finished one today for my fiance... 

this took foooooreeeevvverrrrr to do... i spent the better part of the day drilling and grinding and sanding the inside, which included about an hour to pick a piece of rogue metal out of my finger and several hours total waiting for the thing to cool down enough to touch. 

if anyone else does this, use something to protect your fingers and your eyes, because stuff flies everywhere, and the metal gets freaking HOT.

so i finished this and went and got a manicure, because my hands were messed.  Cheesy
