Bar Style Wooden Oval Handles

These wooden handles are moulded to the precise oval shape (1.00 in. x 1.25 in.) to fit in the swing bar style hinged handle hardware common on many caskets. This dowel bar can also be used to fit handmade wood brackets with wheel bolts for a stationary handle set. Sold in three lengths to accommodate most swing bar handle configurations. Use two long and two medium handles for one complete casket.

A typical casket handle on the long side is 63-68 inches in length. A typical short handle ranges from 10 to 16 inches. For individual "EAR" style handles, the length is 9-11 inches. Dowels are available in pine, oak, soft maple, and walnut.


  • Oval: 1 inch by 1-1/4 inches
  • Long Handles: 72 inches
  • Short Handles: 24 inches


These wooden dowels are compatible with different sized parts from different manufacturers.  Order carefully--and if you have questions let us know.

This is for any future customers. This is one of the most hospitable & caring companies we have ever dealt with. I recently had the great honor of building my father-in-law's casket per the family's request. I had 1 week to complete the project. After ordering our parts needed we thought it would be shipped next day but there was an error with the shipping method. Mary & Jonas responded right away also keeping great communications with us & never hesitated with any of our requests and shipped it out next day to make sure we received it in time without any further charges. They are to be commended on their customer service skills. I will definitely use this company again should I ever need there services aging. Thank you again Mary & Jonas

I bought these to make hammer handles. Not for a casket. The customer service was great, packing and product fully met my expectations. I read the website and I commend the honest discussion on the make vs buy on a casket. I did not know much about this topic.

oval handles

I did not get them to be used on a casket. I got them to be used for hewing spear hafts. As such, I needed the grain to run as parallel to the long axis of the oval shape as possible. I needed 1 walnut and 1 oak. Jonas said he would do his best, and he DID !!!! the 2 I received are perfect for what I wanted. As soon as I get the spearheads mounted and decide which works and looks best I will be ordering 4 more. I will, definitely be ordering from them again. Excellent Customer Service Very good prices Expedient shipping. Tom in Seattle
