JEANNE GETS THE TULIP HOOK
(Please click image to enlarge)
Thanks everyone for bidding! And thanks too for all the kind comments. My porch and I appreciate you!
Here's another Tulip Wood hook for bids! Tulip wood is fun to work with cause it smells so good, like a flar (that's Crick talk for "flower"). The grain is just phenominal with reds and pinks against blond. VERY pretty wood! As to size, its an H and a smidge over 7 inches long. I've not carved a thumb rest in the hook but will do that at the high bidder's whim... overhanders might like a thumb rest, underhanders might not. Either way the enlarged part downsream from the hook shank is well oversized for grip comfort.
Oh and while you're here, please scroll down and take a look at the "Axe Ataxial" badge (Please copy it to your blog to spread the word about Friedreich's Ataxia), and the "chophooks". I'm continuing to sell chophooks to raise funds for FA research. You can see how to get your chophooks in the Dec. 6 post below. Its a great cause and the hooks are getting some pretty good reviews. Win win!!
ok... so lets run this auction till this coming Wednesday night, 10pm Pacific Std time... and you can send your bids by email to me at:
