Because this hook is handcrafted there will be variation in appearance, grain, size and color. While there are slight variation the basic Ergonomic shape is maintained. No two handcrafted hooks will be the same!
Pictures are examples of what you will receive.
Unsure how to order? See "Ordering, step by step" for a line by line example.
Please note while I try to get as much "red" as I can in a hook, there is no guarantee of color. I can't see inside the wood and color may less from the starting blook.
Box Elder trees are fast growing and tolerate poor conditions. These shade trees have brittle wood. Box Elder bugs eat seeds on female trees. Although it grows best on moist soils, Box Elder is drought and cold resistant. It can also tolerate flooding for extended periods (up to a month). The seeds are a source of food for birds and mammals, and are important because they stay on the tree through winter, when other food resources are scarce.
