This brass hook is mounted on another piece of scrap pistachio wood . I could not throw this one away so I used if for another hook mount. I have the screws hidden on it by useing a keyhole slot in the top back and the lower screw is behind the fish. All the worm holes were left as is…the worms have signed it too!!

It is 3/4” x 5” x 6 1/2” and finished with clear satin spray.

Cheers, Jim

Nice hook. Those worm holes give it a little more charm so let them be.

Nice job Jim. I love it when wood has wormholes. Alot of the times i fill larger bug/worm holes with clear epoxy and it seems to magnify it and you can see right in it and still have a flat surface if that is what is desired.

Good one Jim, Lots of character in wood…....Pistachio Scraps far too good to chuck out and I also like the worm holes.
Good project….keep them coming.

Regards,

Cliff.

Cool Jim. The way you mounted it looks like the ripples on the water after the bass jumped. Impressive. The pistachio was not meant for the scrap pile. I think I’ll go have some pistachio’s right now.

Thanks Cliff, Todd, Bob,Na Fianna, Buster and Dave.

Hi Dave, after I looked at the first photo today, I thought the same thing but I did not plan it like that!. I planned it to cover a big crack! Also, I wanted to have the bottom of the hook hang in the air because things hand better then they can wrap around a hook and they won’t scratch the finish.

cheers, Jim

I like this piece of pecan it makes the fish look like it’s jumping right out of the water going for pray .

Love the wood mate.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
