Your note made MY day. Since I made that post, I made the hooks (actually 5 of them) and sent some down to my sis today.
I know my sis won’t care whether they work well or not.. she’ll use them just because they’re what they are. But they should work well.. they’re just silky smooth (I waxed them) and they’ll bring back lots of good memories for her. I know they did for me when I was making them.
So now I’ve made more and am thinking of selling a few to folks who might like a “rustic” hook that’s a little more than just a tool. Not to get rich, but because I really love making them. The wood hiding under that bark can be amazingly beautiful.
Anyways, thanks again for your kind words.
Ane here’s hoping your dreams come true too.
