Metal Handles And Latches For Doors, Drawers, And Gates



Going through my photos I could see that it was time to look at handles
 for doors, drawers and gates to give a few ideas for designers, and builders.

Above are handles for the doors into the Albuquerque Aquarium.



The handles above help create a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired entrance
 to the Thorncrown Chapel, designed by Fay Jones, in Eureka Springs Arkansas.

To see more of the chapel go to my earlier post 
or go to the right sidebar and click on
Building In Eureka Springs Arkansas 
under LABELS- PEOPLE, BOOKS, AND OTHER PLACES


This striking lion door comes from the post
a town that has some of the nicest doors I have seen.

To see the family shop where these doors were made go to the post

To see more on Building In Alamos Sonora,
Builders In Alamos Sonora, etc.
look under LABELS- MEXICO on the right sidebar.


To see where these spoon handles live go to the post




The ruins of the jail in Hillsboro, N.M. still have this formidable door,

For more on the area go to LABELS- NEW MEXICO on the right sidebar
and click on Building In Hillsboro And Kingston New Mexico.


The next three gates (above and below) are also from Alamos, Sonora.


Hard not to like this latch, above.


There is something about the round shape that has a very oriental feel.


And finally this handle lives in San Ignacio, Baja California Sur.

You can look under LABELS- MEXICO on the right sidebar 
and click on Building In Baja California Sur to see more of the area.

For more on this subject you can look on the right sidebar under

  1. I love your blog, Ches! Great work you are doing, compiling photos of all these interesting, mostly natural, building projects.

    I'm going to (try to) link to this blog from the Builders Without Borders facebook page?

    Say, if you are interested, think about coming to one of a series of natural building workshops BWB is offering at the Lodge, in Kingston, NM in August. You can view the poster on the Lodge facebook page:
