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.
Found in Tropical South America Bloodwood has a red heartwood, as it ages it turns a darker brown/red.
Used in everything from carvings to furniture, bloodwood is strong but it is a challenge to work. Very dense and brittle the wood can splinter when being carved or turned on a lathe. Super sharp tools fix the problem.
If you are purchasing a couple of hooks, the Bloodwood has a nice contrast with the darker woods like Gabon Ebony or a lighter wood like American Holly
