I hope you get a chance to make a wood ring because it really is fun. I show you how to add a brass inlay but you can keep it simple if you want and just leave it wood. I made a Triforce from the Legend of Zelda because it is fairly easy. There are two ways to add the brass. The second way is not a shiny but I encourage you to try both ways for the experience of it and it is a lot of fun. You can add other designs or shapes, even small stones can be attached.
I had a bit of a resin fail on this project
