These ancient shepherds of the forest are old gnarled woods full of benign cancerous growths that give these woods their unique beauty. These growths are called burls. These burls are the tumors you see on the sides of trees. Contained within those growths are some of the most stunning woods known to man.
Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Barrel Dice
Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Barrel Dice$42.00 – $167.00
Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrels are made from White Oak, a common domestic hard wood that is used in many applications. The wood is used for just about everything including cabinetry, furniture, interior trim, flooring, veneer, and of course barrels.
The charred inside of a whiskey barrel adds a distinct smokey flavor to the beverage but it also gives the dice crafted from it a unique added flair. The D6s in our polyhedral sets come with the 6 side bearing that fine black char.
Jim Beam Oak Whiskey Barrel Dice
Jim Beam Oak Whiskey Barrel Dice$42.00 – $167.00
Jim Beam has used the same ratio of corn, rye, and barley in its mash bill for over 200 years and the same yeast colony for 75 years. Their Bourbons are aged for twice the legally required minimums. Meaning that these blanks have been soaking in that liquid libation for a minimum of 4 years and some of the whiskeys aging 12 years or more. The barrels are coopered by hand, from charred white oak and metal hoops. You can see the char from the insides of these barrels preserved on the 6 side of every d6 we make from them.
Redwood Burl$46.00 – $212.00
All of our Redwood is harvested from the stumps of Old Growth Redwood trees that were harvested in the 1800’s. None of these living giants are harmed to make your dice. These trees truly are a sight to behold. These behemoths grow to gigantic proportions in the temperate rain forest of the Pacific Northwest. They are the largest living organisms in the world. Each tree is a biotope of its own supporting a cavalcade of life from the bottom of its roots to the upper most reaches of its canopy.
Big Leaf Maple (Broad Leaf / Oregon Maple)
Big Leaf Maple (Broad Leaf / Oregon Maple)$39.00 – $158.00
Also known as Broad Leaf Maple or Oregon Maple, Big Leaf Maple is light reddish-brown and fine-grained. The figure mutations of curl, burl and quilt are quite rare. Only one tree out of hundreds will be figured, but the figure is often exceptional. Most of this stock will have very nice figuration, which means cool-looking grain structures that make each matched-grain set of dice unique.
