Made to Order
Special handmade men's wedding ring from colored box elder and olive wood. This ring is hand made in Brentwood, TN in my home shop! The wood is treated, stabilized, and water sealed to last a long time.
HOW THE RING IS MADE:
- Grade 5 titanium rod is turned on a lathe to near the ring size and form the inner sleeve of the ring. The titanium washer that separates the antler and wood is also cut at this time.
- Wood blocks are hand selected and then cut into thin slices. The slices are then center drilled near ring size to slide onto the ring.
- Special formula super glue and marine sealant are then applied.
- The ring then goes thru multiple process of sanding and buffing to get a smooth finish.

NOTE ABOUT COLORS AND PATTERNS:
- These rings involve organic materials such as wood and/or deer antler. They come in random pattern and color. There won't be any guarantee for pattern and color. Deer antler can be creamy white with little spot to dark spots. Wood pattern is also random and could be darker or lighter.
- Please scroll thru images and review the colored box elder wood. The range is anywhere from black, brown, red, natural wood color. This is due to the process of coloring the wood. Blue dye is poured on one end, Purple and black dye on the other ends, so the result slightly different such as dark brown or black when the 2-color mixed or no color where the dye couldn't get to the wood.
