First off, a wooden ring isn't like a summer camp arts and crafts project. These pieces of art require quality craftsmanship and materials. The star of the show? The bentwood technique. This method involves wrapping thin layers of wood around each other, creating a metaphorical wood hug that's as strong as it is beautiful. And remember folks, the type of wood matters! High-quality hardwoods are to wooden rings what avocados are to toast: essential and perfect.
Then there's the finishing touch, a strong sealant. And no, we're not talking about your typical Home Depot variety. Our wooden rings are coated with many layers of cyanoacrylate glue (CA glue) Or 2 stage epoxy that gives a glossy finish and also makes the rings very resistant to water (more on that in a moment).
Maintaining your wooden ring is like taking care of a small pet. It doesn't ask for much, but what it needs, it really needs.
- Cleaning: Wipe your ring gently with a soft, dry microfiber cloth. No, not your t-shirt, a cloth.
- Water Exposure: Your ring is water-resistant, not a professional swimmer. Avoid saltwater and unnecessary water contact. Basically, don't let your ring live a mermaid life.
- Impact: Remember when we said wooden rings are strong? We weren't kidding. They can withstand normal wear and tear. However, if you're planning a WWE wrestling match, it's better to leave your ring in the corner.
- Chemical Exposure: Your ring and household cleaning products aren't friends. It's best to keep them apart.
- Refinishing: Like a beauty salon visit for your ring, refinishing helps to restore the shine if it starts looking a little tired. We refinish yours at no cost for the life of your ring.
