Yes, it's not from Home Depot. It's made from a small branch from one of my ohia trees. It's naturally shaped like that.
I like using natural items from the farm. Many of my handles and towel racks are tree branches or bamboo. Besides being cool, I like the idea of my homestead providing for itself. Why spend cash for somecplastic & chrome handle from the hardware store? Heck, I can whittle my own for free. Two screws are all that is needed to attach the handle to the door. Simple.
I grew up being taught to buy stuff at the store. Homemade was looked down on. I finally broke away from my brainwashing and now delight in handmade stuff, especially if I (or one of my friends) makes it.
