Coat hook version 5.1


Recommended Posts

Here it is, coat hook version 5, it's still a work in progress and I'm posting this now to get some feedback before I call it finished.

my primary concern is to make this leafy vine like hook unmistakeable from a snake. My second being, is the top of the hook a broad enough curve to not damage coats.



Basic profile right after making the holes.


Rounded and bent the tops into "figure 8s" notice anything wrong?

Side view of the hook, you can see the profile of the curve, (the leaves are about thumb sized if you can't figure out the scale.)

Dogsoldat, I have but I dislike them, I think the straight lines break up the curvature of the piece.

I have thought about taking a chisel to the edge of the "figure 8" portion of the vine to give it more of a plant like look.  But I think the leaves are broad enough to avoid being mistaken for a snake, what do you think?
