I do not have my own workshop and I do not have proper tools , so I started whit something small.

Somebody said : sculpting is easy , you just have to remove all the unnecessary material.

So I took piece of fir-tree what was meant for burning and this saw

saw

and started to remove the unnecessary wood.
After a little work I got this
blank

When I started using rasps (what I inherited from my grandpa )
rasp

I notice there is some more unnecessary wood.
After more sawing I got this

blank2

Then I used on my regular workplace one of thous for sanding

puurpink
puurpink2

depended which one was free on the lunch hour.
After lots of hand sanding and finishing whit lacquer for bouts I got
those door handles situated on the edge.
The 2 pieces in the middle I started 8 years ago and finished them now
and they are from pine tree.

carvings

As I desperately need many I want to sell them. Please somebody advise , what wud be a rite price to ask for such things ?

i think if you made the dimensions closer to some bigger door handles people with that funky rustic/artistic taste would pay good $$ for em, but elsewhere, ehh i dunno probably not worth your time if you’re trying to make a living from it…just my .02 cents

They look cooolll tho!

Interesting design. But finding the right customers might be hard.

Wow, that’s cool – wasn’t sure where that was going after your first cuts!

I don’t know what the right price is, but I might suggest that people building log homes might be interested in accessories such as those, for cupboards, closets, etc.

Yes , it was intentional not to show the finale product until the end.

just started lj’s a few days ago and am looking around all over the site . I saw your name and the map of where you live and thought it was pretty cool to leave a message to someone half way around the world. I would like to know more about where you live sometime. I am guessing it is pretty cold there? did you sell your handles? they look great you should try to auction them on ebay.

Have your say...
