Got my belt in for my bandsaw and got to cutting. Man this wood is hard. After getting the knobs cut off I got out my little knife sharpener belt sander, LOL yea that was a joke. I tried it but that walnut just smiled and held its ground. So out came the big belt sander, that worked much much better.

So now looks like the last step will be to seal the tips and this little project will be all wrapped up.  :'(

I plan on bringing a couple slabs of home cured, cold smoked bacon for give away.  I have been making and eating it for the past year or so and it beats damn near anything you can buy in the store.

That's great Tim, but better yet is the fact that you will be there. Maybe you could share your recipe for doing your own bacon. I like the sound of that.

I got another Sow Perfect seeder coming in from Kirk compliments of Steve up in New York and I am waiting on a box of goodies from Maggie up in New York also.  That box is going to be a surprise.....

The Hook and Crook give away hoes are complete. This has been a fun project, had a couple of Humm moments but with some help from some members got them figured out.
Big thanks to the following people:
Donald, for talking to Randy to get this started.
Randy from Hook and Crook, for providing me with all the blades and wood, to many choices. lol.
Maggie and Jim, they where able to take the Cajun simple idea out of my head and put it on the wood handles.
LSU Tim, for helping with the dryer ideas. 

If I had to guess this will be the only 4 made, so if you want a chance to win one or 2, make plans to be at the GTG the end of this month.

Good job Zook!

They came out very nice!

 I agree with Boo. I think it will be treasured by the lucky recipient.
