Solid Wood, Walnut Wedding Band
This is a hand-turned oak wood ring cut from used Jack Daniels whiskey barrels, custom made to your specifications – choose the size, width, and shape from the options to create your own handmade ring! Your ring will have a similar look to those in the pictures – charred oak wood – but each ring is a unique piece of wood with it’s own unique patterning with no two exactly alike! Please note the variability in coloring in the photos – due to the charring process, your ring may be lighter or darker than the shown image!
After a Jack Daniels barrel is no longer of use to the distillery, it is sold to a number of craftsmen who make everything from planters to knife handles from the wood – or, in this case, a solid wood ring. I purchase the barrels straight from the distillery general store and have them shipped to my doorstep, where I dismantle them into individual staves to be cut into rings.
Each ring is hand polished and finished with several layers of cyanoacrylate. While many crafters use oils and waxes to finish their rings, cyanoacrylate provides a stronger bond within the wood grain, provides protection from water, and reduces the likelihood of scratching – a common issue with other finishing materials.
