Build Your Own Wedding Ring for Five Cents

Nickle RingSo you’ve already dropped a few grand on the engagement ring, and aren’t too psyched on the idea of spending even MORE money on a wedding band? Instructables has a nice little tutorial for boring out the middle of a nickle, which forms a perfectly functional wedding ring. At least, until you get the scratch together for a reasonable replacement. Now, a Google search tells us that while defacing US currency is indeed illegal, let’s face it…the feds aren’t likely to come swooping in on your fiancee’s finger. Further, there is some concern about nickle allergies listed in the comments on this project. But really, if you’re enough of a pansy that you’re allergic to nickle, you probably shouldn’t get to use a Dremel tool, anyway.
