Well Debbie asked for them, so I am posting some I randomly grabbed off the pile. Now that I am looking at them, I think I will go back out to the shop today, and do some turning…

Anyway, here are some pictures (some are a little blurry, sorry). These are made from cherry, walnut, maple, and a mystery wood that came from flooring cut offs. My favorite is the one on the left at the top of the page. I pushed the knot out after turning it. You cant see if from the picture, but the hole goes completely through the hook.

Enjoy.

Nice turnings. I bet they’d look real cool with a little silver or gemstone inlay too. It’s like your favorite one with the knot hole…That caught my eye as well. Makes it really unique. Would they also be as strong if the wood was laminated?

These are nice pieces. They make me want to go out into the shop and turn something too- and I don’t ahve a lathe.

Thanks for sharing.

Too Cool ! I happen to love to crochet (but not as much as woodworking!!!) Do you sell these? I am serious.

I’ve sold one, or 2, but have mostly give them away as gifts. The wife, and mother-in-law are trying to get me to set up a booth at a craft festival in Robbinsville. I think I might do it this year.

I’d buy one .. or two.

I, too, love the one on the left.
But any of them would be wonderful especially if you could say “they are one of a kind”
Then you could do a little chip carving and put some initials in the ends.
and then .. lol

Ok.. so I REALLY like them!!!!
