Oak crochet hook made by my husband!

Recommended Posts

I've been married a little over a year and I just found out my husband used to do woodwork! Well he kept telling me all about it so I put him to the test. I told him I wanted him to make me a wood crochet hook. He said that was easy and fast. Well it took him a few weeks to really finish it but I love it!

What made him decide to use oak? I've never heard of oak hooks, even though oak is a hard wood.

Not sure, he wanted to make sure it was sturdy and would not break easily. I don't think he did much research, just went with it.

Doesn't Jimbo use oak?  Now I'll have to find his web site! LOL

Just looked it up on his blog.  He says that he does not use oak, because of the grain in it.  Go figure! ???

Maybe the grain makes it harder to work with; grain is different thicknesses, right?  I wonder if that makes it harder to make it perfectly smooth, so it won't catch on the fiber?

It was catching on my yarn so he has been sanding it down even more. Waiting to get it back now.... :yarn

PinkGlitter, maybe your hubby could go on Jimbo's blog, and ask him about oak, and the different woods he uses to make hooks.  He (your hubby) would really enjoy reading Jimbo's blog!
