help with modeling

Hello, I found a tutorial on creating a scale:

http://www.tutorialized.com/view/tutorial/3dsmax-tutorial-for-weight-loss-./56678

Okay so apparently I don’t understand something in this tutorial and I need someone’s help explaining this part of a tutorial. I am on [8] on the tutorial where it says to create a donut “[8]-Create a Donut and set like this”. Okay first of all, A DONUT? What does it mean by that. That is all I need to no.

it means a ring (that looks like a doughnut :stuck_out_tongue: (duh)
