Introduction: Guitar String Inlay for Bentwood Ring

For a while I was thinking what to add to the bentwood ring. I knew that I wanted to add some kind of inlay but I was unsure which one. Than I decided to add a bass guitar string.

Watch me as I explain and add a bass guitar string to a walnut bentwood ring.

Great Videos, i had to try it immediately.

Here are my first two rings:

Bottom - Oregon Pine, my first try. Finished with CA.

Top: Santos Palisander and Poplar with a copper inlay (after grinding what i thought was solid silver wire) finished the outside with pure boiled linseed oil and CA on the inside.

(the poplar HAD beautiful, much more pronounced greenish streaks... i should have listened better, and NOT boil mahogani, teak, Palisander and poplar in the same water... now i know)
