"Very nice heavy piece and the aging is well done. You will need different screws as these are very cheap and the heads will twist off even after pre drilling and hand driving them in. Also if you need to remove the screws the head will twist off every time. I bought brass screws and soaked them in vinegar for a few days to ""age"" them and it worked well and matched as well."
These look great, the aging is perfect and they are pretty sturdy but you will need different screws as the heads twist off the screws even after pre drilling and hand driving them in. They are irregularly shaped so if you want a completely square piece this is not it.
"I inset the drawer handles into oak cabinet but had to hand file exterior perimeter to get dimensions the same. Variation was up to .030"". One of the two door handles required extensive filing to eliminate binding when the handle was returned into the opening. End product looks good and client is well satisfied"
