How are the door knobs finished?
How are the door knobs finished? Knobbs standard design doorknobs are hand sanded and coloured with water based woodstains. They are then sprayed with a minimum of six coats of flooring grade lacquer, smoothed with the finest wire wool and finally polished with beeswax to give them a deep lustre. All of these process are carried out in-house by human hands – not machines and none of our work is subcontracted. Our bespoke styles in rosewood, ash and oak are wax polished to bring out the beautiful grain in the wood.
This finishing process gives the knobs and roses an attractive and durable finish. They are also available in sanded only finish for home completion. As our door knobs are individually hand made size and colour may vary ever so slightly.
Each set comprises of two door knobs, one with an insert inside and one with a spindle. We supply wooden roses with our standard designs and they can also have solid brass roses. These can be plated to with a nickel, antique brass, chrome, brushed stainless steel or antique bronze finish. Please ask about other finishes if you have something different in mind. Your door knobs will arrive with all the fixings you will need – screws, allan key and grubscrew along with some fitting instructions- everything is included in the price.
*Our doorknobs are not mass produced imports – we make them ourselves in our workshop in rural Pembrokeshire*
