So I think that I have an addiction to making these rings. The solid rings were made first then I took a stab at the multi-layered rings.
Top row: Red Oak with Cumaru center- solid Spalted Maple- Cumaru with Red Oak center (The finance wanted a really small ring, its a size 3.5)
Bottom row: Solid Ipe- Solid Hickory- Brazilian Cherry outsides, Ipe center, Maple inner stripes
All of the rings are a strong 1/16” thick not quite 3/32”, and yes I know that the rings are rather wide but I hate wearing narrow rings. The solid rings all came from 3/4” scrap flooring that we could not install in a floor because of the crazy color variation . . . But perfect for a unique ring though! They are finished with 2 coats shellac and 2 coats of commercial grade Poly that we use on floors. Enjoy!
