Our very substantial English Oak Door Stop, with a difference.
AVAILABLE IN 5 SIZES, PLEASE SEE SIZES BELOW.
Different because they are cut from the massive trunks of wind blown trees, and will include the beautiful natural grain patterns that you wouldn't normally see in a product like this.
The giant slabs of Oak are slowly seasoned outside, air drying, for as long as two years before being cut to a rough shape. Once the slabs have done most of their drying, twisting and moving and some character has appeared, it’s at this stage the rough door stop is cut to shape and sanded to a silky smooth finish. It's then ready to be personalised and then finally sealed with several coats of Waxoil.
Our Oak door stops are AVAILABLE IN 5 SIZES (please see sizes available below), and can be blank without personalisation or can be personalised with your choice of words, lettering or logo / Motif. You can choose to have just one, or up to all four faces engraved with words of your choice.
Although seasoned for a few years outside, it is still essentially "Green Oak" and is the same grade that is used to build timber framed buildings. Green oak is not completely seasoned, sections of Oak this size will take decades to season completly, therefore if kept inside in a warm and dry house IS LIKELY TO MOVE & SPLIT a little more over time. This is all in character with the wood. It's the same as the ageing process of oak beams and is part of the natural beauty of the wood. It will not affect the function of the product and the handle will always stay secure.
As the material we use for these stops varies in shape and size so much, each one is truly individual, the Oak used for these is always selected for its outstanding grain pattern. The only thing that’s the same in each one is the chunky handmade stainless steel ring.
