These beautiful hooks are handcrafted by artist Scott Foster. Turned on a lathe; cut with a sloyd knife, hand sanded, and finished. Hooks are made to order.
Teak is widely cultivated on plantations worldwide, but it's expensive. It is perhaps one of the most expensive woods on the market, at least for large-sized, non-figured wood. Other woods are more expensive but are typically only available in small pieces or they are valued solely for the figure of their grain.
Teak is used in high-end sailboats due to its ability to withstand the elements.
