Hardware, Restored

One of Eric's fortes outside of architecture and building is restoring antique hardware. You can see the results here. These are the original door knobs after some work with the grinding wheel (with abrasive brush) and 'wipe on' polyurethane. Unfortunately not all the hinges were solid brass, so some of the brass finish is gone, but thats hidden most of the time anyway on a near exterior door.


  1. Further inquiry: Were you removing paint, dirt, something other than just an aged patina?

  2. hi Lynn, combination of everything! Whatever it was, it came off with the grinder. :)
