Expanding my skills to take on some woodworking!  

I decided to use hawthorn for this since I was trimming my tree and it seems like a good durable wood.  I regret that somewhat as the thorns on hawthorn actually originate in the wood itself, so it is very knotty and snags the knife.

The branch and branch cutter:



Stripping the bark:

Two hooks ready to dry:


I had more need for tool hooks that coat hooks, so this is the hooks in use for now:

I was busy whacking branches of pruned tree limbs with my nata (Japanese machete/axe) when I discovered one species has absurdly sturdy branch crotches. I left them to be sawn later but I ran across this badge but and thought it would be a fun 30 minute craft with perfect wood for it.

I haven't identified the tree yet, but I'll try again when it leafs out this year.
