I needed a handle toggle latch for a new barn door I constructed, and not finding one, I ended up carving a FINGle instead. It is from a large piece of lilac wood, harder than all get out to carve, I kid you not! The second picture shows its size in relationship to my burly hand.

That is so funny. Would be great on an out house door. Great idea.
