Custom Ring, part 3

The next step once the frame parts were finished is to solder them together.  The bottom section will be soldered to the longer side pieces, this will make things easier to clean up, not having to get into the concave section. the solder should be applied to the outside of the shank, again making clean up easier.  The soldering photo is a little blurry, it's a little tricky to take a good picture and solder at the same time!

Once the sides are connected the extensions need to be removed, using a fine I blade cut right next to the base out, trying to keep the same angle that the bottom has.
The last step in the this section is to file down the part that has just been removed for a smooth transition.
