Above you can see the finished ring, it shines like ivory, perfectly matching my pasty pale self!

Step 1: Tools and Materials
That said, the requirements for this project are as follows.
Selection of spade bits
Fine tooth saw (many options here)
Belt sander (optional, but significantly reduces time consumed)
Hydrogen peroxide (for whitening)
Bone (I chose a deer antler)
Dowel rod matched to your finger size (optional)
Step 2: Creating a blank
Now we can begin.
Put your bone of choice into your vise, make sure its secure. You do not want to get hit in the face with your drill if it stalls.
Chuck a spade bit roughly the size of your finger (go smaller rather the bigger if you have to, you can always make the hole bigger with the dremel later), and drill a hole a little deeper than the desired width of your ring. I went about 1/4 of an inch to give me a little extra material to work with.
