During winter, the door and handle’s temperature is the body temperature. Therefore, heat flows horn the body into the object touched. Since, metallic handle being a good conductor takes more heat from the finger touching it, we feel cold. Wooden door being a poor conductor takes less body heat and appears less cold.
