Made from seasoned English Oak
Our Door Stops are made from locally sourced seasoned English Oak, which is hand selected for its outstanding grain pattern and fantastic natural colours.
Although the English Oak we use is seasoned, sections of Oak this size will continue to season for decades, so over the first few days/weeks or months of being in its new home your doorstop will settle into its new environment, and depending on where it's being kept this may result in a few characterful splits appearing, this is all in the character of the wood and is its natural ageing process, this will not affect the function of the product and the handle will always stay secure.
We do not recommend keeping these in environments with underfloor heating or to close to the heat source of a centrally heated room i.e. radiators or open fires etc. If permanently kept inside, the maturing process of your doorstop will naturally be accelerated due to the constant warm, dry environment, and if kept outside the process will dramatically slow down.
Your new doorstop has low profile rubber feet recessed into the base to keep it off the ground, and help it grip the floor, also allowing an air gap beneath the doorstop.
Due to the nature of this product, we recommend unpacking upon receipt to allow the Oak to breath. On unpacking the doorstop, you might find that the protective packaging is damp to touch, this is completely normal, the wood has natural water content and the dampness is condensation/evaporation. Once unpacked, we recommend sitting your new doorstop on the two wooden battens for a couple of days at least, this will allow it to acclimatise to its new surroundings, and allow any moisture to evaporate from the base of the doorstop easily.
