I have an old Weber grill that has been out in the weather since I bought it. The handles were getting pretty rotten and wearing away… there was just a little chip left of the top part of the top handle as you can see from the pix. I was getting tired of getting burned picking up that lid…
So a little scrap Teak, and a few tries later, I had new handles for my old grill. (I cut the first set out of mahogany before I realized it wasn’t Teak, then the second set I cut the last part out too short, so I remade it.) I tried to drown these in Linseed Oil so they’d last a bit longer. I have no idea if that’s appropriate, but it should hold up for at least as long as the originals did.
Nice project for the fourth of July I’d say.
