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


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

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

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


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


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.


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...
