My new handles arrived today. Made from oak. I stained them and sealed them, and here they are.

I got them from Brian O'Neil over on the Virtual Weber bullet forum. I believe the price for one handle is 15 bucks, but he will cut you a very fair deal based on how many you buy. I bought seven, and he treated me right.

They are well made, and look great. They come unstained. I used Minwax Natural Oak stain, and Minwax Spar Polyurethane to protect them.

Looks really nice. My Daddy's first grill I remember when I was a little boy was a Red Weber. Classic.

Those look pretty sharp. Nice to know that there are at least 2 styles of wooden handles to choose from out there (Brian's and Marty's).

The red Weber had wooden handles to begin with. The 18.5 and WSM had plastic.

Those are nice, but if you have handle envy, take a look at Marty Leach's handles that he makes. They're OVER THE TOP!!!

Marty's handles are sweet as hell. I want some for my smoker, but I'm worried they'll get all black and grimed up.

For all my vintage kettles, I prefer the OEM look.

you can buy brian's wood handles here (http://weberkettleclub.com/weber-handles/)

Yeah, me too.

Marty's handles are beautiful, for sure, but I preferred the nostalgia of the old Weber woodies.

My very early wsm 18.5 has wooden handle.
