Asheville's Antique Walnut
Our antique walnut was hand picked from a collector in Asheville North Carolina. It originated in an old tobacco barn constructed in the late 1800s. The board we have is about two feet wide and such a deep brown it's almost purple in some places. It's over 100 years old based on the date of the barn, and the tree likely another 100 as well.
When the settlers first came to the New World they forests untouched for centuries with a canopy of colossal trees as far as the eye could see. Much of that old growth is gone, which is sad, not only because we don't have the opportunity to see what our ancestors saw, but also because trees begin to exhibit different characteristics the older they get, and it shows in the wood. We feel fortunate to hold a piece of history, one that was alive and steady when the future of our nation was so uncertain.
North American Bull Elk
Our elk antler is sourced from natural sheds of North American Bull Elk. While I'm a fan of hunting and get out a few times during the season, I like the thought of these rings being connected with a grand creature still roaming that beautiful country.
Just like wood, each antler has unique characteristics that make every ring one of a kind. Some of our elk antler inlays will have a bit more color to them, while others are quite white. We try our best to find a good balance when crafting each ring by hand.
Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina
As a small business owner and craftsman, it is my honor to play a small role in the new "Made in USA" movement that is taking place across the nation and to do so by sharing part in our American heritage.
