Wood and Bone Ring
I saw a picture of a wooden ring somewhere, and I decided to make one. I had some scraps of brazilian mahogany laying around, so I used that. The first attempt was made out of a single piece, and was too brittle. This was the second attempt. I sandwiched two pieces around a slab of bone I cut out of a dog chew.
I kind of winged the shaping of it on the fly, and this is what I came up with. Brazilian mahogany is a really dense wood, and it polished up quite nicely on a buffing wheel.
Teener was very happy with it when I gave it to her later that night.
