Bourbon Barrel Ring
Ships in 5-7 business days
This is a hand-turned oak wood ring cut from used Jim Beam bourbon 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 - natural oak wood - but each ring is a unique piece of wood with it's own unique patterning with no two exactly alike!
After a Jim Beam 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 rings. I purchase the barrels 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.
To order a pair of rings: add the first ring to your cart with the correct size/shape information, return to this page, then add another ring with the second size/shape information.
Ring Size: 5-13. If you need a larger or smaller size, please inquire at www.thevintagegentlemen.com
As with all wood rings, this material is less durable than a traditional metal ring, but with proper care and maintenance, it will look beautiful and last for years!
