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:


Hand tools:


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.

I ended remaking another because I didn't really like the random knots that were in the other.

My apologies Mike, I thought I included that. Here's some photos showing the backs are flat.

Here are my alder (Alnus glutinosa) coat hooks. The tree had fallen in the wind and, although it was still alive, it was blocking the path and looked in pretty bad shape. I managed to get quite a few crotches from it. One of my hooks is from another, unknown piece of wood that the gardeners at the nearby park had pruned. It was much wetter, despite being cut a week or more ago.

I used a billhook as a splitting tool to trim most of the waste off of the upright, then used it as a plane to trim any high spots. I used an actual plane to flatten the faces further. For bark removal, a small mora knife.

It sits flat! This one flattened entirely using the mora knife.

So what do yall use to flatten the backs of the hooks? What is your method? I just sliced my fingers trying to use a saw. I need some tutoring!
