Ornamental Handle

Handles are something I struggled with for a long time. Once I started to get my handles the way I wanted, I realized that my pieces as a whole looked better. Another example of how paying attention to all the details in a piece can make a world of difference.

In this video, Martha Grover shows how she "fancies" up a pulled handle to make it look perfect (and function well) on one of her elegant butter boxes. - Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor
