$15.00 (THERE IS A TIE FOR THE $15.00 BID SO I'LL HAVE TO GO WITH THE FIRST ONE FROM THE REPORTER LADY




What you're looking at is a real oddity of wood figure. First I thought this chunk of bush maple was spalted and maybe it is a bit but the integrity of the wood doesn't seem to be a bit compromised. So I took a chance and holey cow did the bet pay off. You can't truly see the real beauty of the wood in this pretty much P size hook till you see it first hand. Mother nature outdid herself on this one.

I'd put more pictures in to show you the quilted grain at the end of the handle but Blogger is getting tight with the space here... in fact I had to delete some previous posts to make way for this one. But trust me this is a really beautiful hook. Note that the bluish color on the finger pad is a reflection of some sort. There's no bluish color in the hook at all. Its all cream to coffee colors.

And its up for bids folks!
So.. send your bids by emailing me at

jimbocrochetwhittler@yahoo.com

and away we go!

I'll close bidding on this one this coming Friday sometime when I can get to the computer.

Thanks for your support of the cabin project!
Jimbo
