Read about how we make our rings
Weathered Maple Wood
Our historic maple comes from Asheville North Carolina. The board was taken from a barn built in the late 1800's and was likely used to store tobacco, as was so common in the area.
Weathering the wood is done via an old process, whereby the wood is dipped in water mixed with ferrous sulfate, the same stuff often used as a mineral supplement. You can read more about that process here. The mixture reacts to the tannins in the wood, turning our maple a unique silver color that pairs perfectly with the reddish-brown coffee inlay.
Dual Bronze Inlays
We wanted something to class up our beloved weathered maple and coffee ring and we jumped to bronze because of it's slight reddish hue. It's subtle and helps the coffee pop rather than stealing the attention.
