-Piece of wood veneer, approximately 6 by 6 inches
-Clear nail polish
-5/8" drill bit
-Belt sander or sandpaper
1 to 2 hours of work and about two nights of drying time for woodglue and dyes
Step 1: Cutting the Chips
Step 2: Dyeing the Wood
Using a glass dish, mix a strong dye out of water and food coloring and let the chips soak in it overnight. I chose pink and teal for these chips - three of each color. After about eight hours, rinse the chips and let them dry completely.
Step 3: Making the Ply
Step 4: Shaping the Ring
Then, use a band saw to carefully cut out the rough shape of your ring, leaving it slightly larger than desired so that it can be sanded smooth.
