Queensland Walnut is a large rainforest tree growing mainly in the coastal areas of North Queensland. The Heartwood of the tree is a usually a greyish brown with streaks of chocolate brown, black or pink, with the sapwood a more pale yellow colour. I love working with walnut, its very easily bent around forms after steaming and has such a nice deep brown colour once polished.
The ring pictured is 6mm wide and a size 6.
All of our rings are handcrafted by one Aussie bloke using mostly native hardwoods and a mix of locally discovered inlay materials. Each ring is created using the bentwood method, finished with multiple layers of a waterproof coating and delicately hand sanded and polished resulting in a beautiful and durable wooden band. The warmth and natural look of bentwood rings provide a unique and sustainable alternative to their metal counterparts.
Please note each piece is custom made and can take up to 7 days to be sent.
As every piece I make is completely unique, the colour, wood grain and pattern may differ very slightly to the ring photographed. Due to the method of making these rings there may also be a slight seam where the wood and certain materials, such as wire inlays, meet. This is generally the bottom of the ring, which will be oriented underneath your finger so its not visible.
Each ring in our classics collection can be completely customised to your liking. If you require a size that is not listed, an inlay of a certain stone or different wood, or maybe even a guitar string, we can do it! The sky is the limit! Please send me a message, I'd love to help bring your dream ring to life.
