With its flamboyant red crest crowning a large black and white body, the Pileated Woodpecker really stands out! And like the bird after which it is modeled, our Woodpecker Door Knocker will command attention as it announces the arrival of guests at your door. Pull the sturdy chain and the woodpecker pecks loudly on the log! One pull of the chain.. one knock on the log.
I make these woodpeckers from solid maple for its strength and the crisp sound it makes. The woodpecker is very detailed and hand-painted to accurately reflect the natural bird's beauty. Mounted on a split hardwood log, it makes a great conversation piece and gift.
The log base measures about 11" tall and the woodpecker measures 8" from head to tail. Because of its size you'll probably want to mount your woodpecker next to your door rather than directly on it. Although we both the woodpecker and the log are sealed, they are not 100% waterproof. We recommend mounting your woodpecker where it will be protected from harsh weather. The back of the log is fitted with two keyhole slots it will attach firmly and flush against your the wall. Appropriate screws are provided.
The best knocker ever made
