A small carved handle for a sliding ventilation door in my newly built heat pump room. It is about 4cm long and is carved from apple wood.

Thanks… you hit the nail on the head…. This little ‘hand-le’ sits in a small room amidst a lot of equipment ie, a ground water heat exchanger, hot water heater, floor heat manifold system, water filter system, jet pump, water pressure tank and all the plumbing and wiring to run the same, so it is a little ‘human’ touch to enliven the room. Fun to do as well!

Hadn’t thought of that… but now that you mention it, I can see the camera zoom in to Christopher Reeves left hand as he’s zipping through space…. Nice observation, rivergirl.
