This band was made from forged #4 copper and has what I call a wood grain texture.
It was first hammered out smooth and then the texture applied with a small cross peen hammer.
After working these copper pieces, they work harden, and have to be softened with heat.
They are then acid cleaned and wire brushed.
This piece was then hand polished with a cleaning cloth.
The result is a very warm, shiny, fine copper finish, my favorite of all the finishes I do.
No protective coating has been applied so this piece oxidize with age and use.
Inside measurement is approx 6″ and 1/4″ wide.
