The doorstop is one of our best sellers. It sums up The Oak & Rope Company in so many ways. It is made of oak and rope of course, with a clever little twist in how the rope is attached.
These destination doorstops make fantastic gifts pointing to people's favourite holiday destinations, golf courses, stadium or personal challenges. They make sentimental markers to where loved ones live too...
We can work out the distances for your engravings if you give us the locations.
The doorstops are made from solid green oak and has great substance to it and will certainly hold any door open.
You can personalise 1, 2, 3 or 4 sides. All the engraving is hand engraved in capital letters in our workshop in Kent
We use 'green oak' to make these doorstops, the same grade that is used to build timber framed buildings. Green oak is not completely seasoned, therefore there are varying degrees of cracks in these blocks. This is all in character with the wood. It is similar to that of the ageing process of oak beams and is part of the natural beauty of the wood. The cracks can change over time as the wood reaches equilibrium with its environment. Very often they close up when the moisture of the core of the blocks is equalised with its surroundings, however there is no guarantee of this.
Blocks of these sizes can not be dried/kilned without cracks developing. If you do not like this look, we suggest another product of smaller dimensions where we use super prime kiln dried oak, which should not crack. The cracks will not affect the function of the doorstop and the handle will stay secure.
14 x 14 x 23 cm (43 cm high including the rope). It weighs about 4kg.
