More rings that I have made. I have some more with layers of different woods like the first ring but having a hard time getting my cheap digital camera to get the colors to come out right.
The first ring is cocobolo with maple in the middle, the second is oak and I engraved a cross in it and painted gold leaf in the cross. The third is rosewood and the fourth is cocobolo. The last two are padauk but the picture didn’t really get the red or gloss if it very well – also the last ring I kinda messed up on and made the bottom too thin but I finished it out anyways for the practice and the look.

I used a bandsaw to cut the wood to the desired thickness and glued up the layered rings. Then drill out the holes to the size i needed, another tip to the badsaw to cut off most of the waste wood, then a trip to the table top belt sander to further sand off excess wood and get it as close to the final shape as i can. After that, just file and hand sand and sand some more and put on a lacquer finish.
There are a number of guides for making rings, including some on this website.

And no, I picked up the name from the wild Austrialian boars. There was an old horror type movie about one, kinda like Kujo but a boar.
