Who knew that making a door handle could be such a beautiful process?

I've never spent more than two seconds thinking about a door handle beyond whether I should push or pull to open. But now that I've watched the complete process of making a leather door handle, I'm beginning to think I should think about the little things more. What else is beautiful out there that I never knew?


Turnstyle Designs shows the full step-by-step method they follow to make one of their leather door handles. You'll see it start from a metal cylinder that gets shaved down and polished to a luxurious finished product that's been hand stitched with leather.

It's just a door handle, I know, but everything should be made with care.
