Good ol' fashioned hardwood handles. They just don't make 'em like this anymore. That's why we made them.
Handcrafted from solid hardwood. We use mostly Ash, but on occasion we might have a set of 8 made from oak, or butternut, but difficult for the untrained eye to discern the difference from Ash.
While we designed them to complete our Old World style casket, these solid wood handles are large enough and suitable as door pulls on a barn door, garden gate, tool shed or garage door. In fact, the handle that inspired these was an turn-of-the-century solid oak door handle from a silo room door in side a dairy barn.
The handle has a 3/8-inch threaded bolt inserted in its construction. The bolt has 2 inches protruding for fastening to a heavy door. Each handle includes a pair of matching nuts & washers.
These handles are finished in a coat of pure tung oil. Tung oil is a centuries-old wood finish that is long-lasting, durable, and brings out the color of the wood. Suitable as-is or you can add any finish you like. The tung oil penetrates the wood grain, so the surface is still suitable for any modern oil-based or water-based finish of your choosing.
