Did you take the back down to one single ring?

I am trying a hackberry now, and having trouble getting a single ring.
In some parts the ring is thick and others super thin, easy to violate.

Yes sir. The key to chasing rings on wood not suitable for chasing rings is a razor sharp draw knife, good control and very, very good white lighting. You cant feel and can barely see what you're doing. Go slow and stop for a break if you get frustrated.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Thank you for the reply, this is a super great build along.
I am enjoying reading and the pics. I am following your process closely for my hackberry.
