I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a long time, I finally got up off my lazy butt and did it. This was a fun, quick project…
The woods are red oak and black walnut scraps. Some of the walnut is transition from heartwood to sapwood so there is a lot of color variation.
The handle is shop made of the same material as well.
Head 3.75” wide, 6” deep, 2.5” tall.
Handle 1” dia tapering to 1.25, 12” long.
Assembled length 14” from tip of brass hook.
Finish is Danish Oil & Paste Wax. I fully blame Jim from Alaska for the inspiration on the finish, and it turned out great in my humble opinion…
