Would Polyurethane resin & Oak saw dust make a durable, wood looking ring? Answered

I am wanting to make my own wedding rings for a more unique & special ring.  I do not have the proper equipment to make the ones from wood shavings but I have experimented with resin rings before & I was wondering if I could apply that method with polyurethane resin and sawdust to get a durable ring?  I have the mold for my ring but don't want to go through the hassle of wasting money buying things that will not work.  If you have ever tried this please let me know how it turned out.  I want it to look like a real wooden ring and not cheap.

Define "durable"...

It should work, why not?

possibly the only real way is to try and see if it suites you. Won't look like real wood though because they are particles. You will need a high concentration of saw dust.

Making a metal ring - silver or gold isn't all that hard. a youtube search will show you plenty made with little more then a round bar and a hammer.

PS check with your spouse to be and make sure this is what they expect!!
