I have been trying more laminate style rings. This one is for my Grandfather, made of 19 layers of veneer. The center is a piece of Sycamore with Walnut on both sides. Then 7 layers of Bubinga and finally the outer most is Sycamore again. I start by cutting squares of veneer and layout the pattern I want, with the grains staggered in many different directions to add strength. Then I use a paintbrush to spread the glue on both sides. I found that starting from the center works out best because veneer tends to curl up when you put glue on it. Then I use a few scraps of wood for protection and clamp it up, usually letting the glue cure for a day or two. Finished with Tung oil.(I left the inside unfinished on this) I have many more rings like this in the “shaping” stage, which I do by hand or on a lathe. Thanks for looking!
