Cool stuff. Go Here


Much more in many categories from here
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

That's really cool!

In CT there is a place called Gillette's Castle, which was build by William Gillette (Famous portrayer of Sherlock Holmes) in the 1920's, I believe. He was very afraid of lightning, and almost everything in the stone mansion is wood, including door latches and even light switches. I believe every door latch in the house is different, and feature some complicated mechanisms, at least for wood.

More ideas for the new house...... d*

Cool -thx, Don.

I have been using a wooden front door latch on my cabin for about 8 years.  Nice to see alternative designs.

A stick propped against a door is not considered a "Wooden" door latch! :)
I cut it three times and it's still too short.
