I have put wood handled cookware into the oven for short periods without incident. Specifically, a non-stick wood handled skillet under the broiler with a fritatta in it.
Based on a quick google search, wood doesn't begin the first stage of the combustion process until 450 F. Putting a dutch oven into the oven for a pot roast or stew at 300 F probably wouldn't be a problem.
