Screen Door Handle

Finally got around to putting a handle on the screenhouse door. I could have bought a modern one of some sort from the Ace Hardware store, but I decided to make one. 

I found this funky damaged piece of ohia branch. I think it came from a tree that had been damaged years ago. 

A quick attack with a saw freed the curved piece from the rest of the branch. A tad of work with a file and sandpaper, then a protective coat of polyurethane, and wallah! door pull handle. 

I kinda like how it turned out. 

By the way, it's attached via screws from the other side of the door.
