Do it on a router. drill a center hole.
mount the piece on a piece of wood just tack glue it using hot glue..
make sure you are gluing the rim as well as other areas.
set the router bit to just pierce the bottom, or not… you can use an xacto to do the final piercing .

Cut the outter .. leave the waste there for your router to ride on.
Now cut the inner.. if you glued it with hot glue it should not fly apart.
Now pry out the outter waste. And now gently pull your ring off.

OR take a piece don’t go all the way through, do the outer, and inner, move to the next. When done use a band saw or tablesaw to remove the back of the piece and let the rings fall out.
