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 for an Old World style casket or coffin, these solid wood handles are large enough and suitable as door pulls on a barn door, garden gate, tool shed or garage door.

The design is inspired by the bow tie shapes of door pulls and handles from the Old World. This very same type of handle may have appeared on a Carriage House door in 16th century England. In fact, the handle that inspired these was a turn-of-the-century solid oak door handle from a silo room door inside 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 can be left unfinished or can be finished with an oil or water based finish of your choice.

Great product and customer service

These handles are beautiful, very well-built, easy to finish, and simple to install. Shipping was fast and Mary was very helpful and patient in answering all my questions.

Wood handles

Hi Mary, I am waiting for you to get back to me re: all wood handles before I return the ones with metal bolts. Ball’s in your court. Thanks, Alvin 256-335-8887

quality parts

great parts. May want to use maple instead of ash, ash doesn't take stain very well

That's a great idea and we will consider making this in maple.


Handles for my cabinet.

I used the handles on a very heavy display cabinet that I needed to be able to load and unload on a trailer. Due to the weight of the cabinet I needed something strong and durable. These handles not only work perfectly for the lifting, when stained, they match the woodwork as if they were made for it. Thanks
