Restoring Brass Handles - Before and After

It has been a while since our last post.

We have purchased these handles a little while ago in April. See our Facebook post from 17th April on our Facebook site after a treasure hunt.

They were in a state with one wooden handle already replaced and the other infested with woodworm.

So in came the latest new toy so we could turn new handles but to the same pattern.
Husband utterly enjoyed himself by going back to his original trade - Woodworking!
As you can see in this picture, lots of red wood shavings.
The wood used was in our store for 40 years, just waiting for the right application.

And here is the pair of handles in all its 'new' reclaimed glory.

They look just gorgeous and with age and use they will only improve!
