Still going, planning on completing these monthly projects, one by one. :)

I have some of those nasty honeysuckle (the non-native ones) trees in my backyard and I don't mind taking a branch or two now and then.  Once you strip the bark off it's some pretty stout wood.



(Kind of a weird pic. I'm actually holding the branch that the pot hanger's suspended from.)

I'd say that one is perfectly engineered, you could safely hang a Dutch oven full of beef stew from it!   If you were one of my Boy Scouts, I'd sign your merit badge card right away :thumbsup:

Have you seen ANY picture of ANYTHING I've ever posted ANYWHERE on the internet?  8)

I've built more pothooks for myself and in teaching Scouts over the years, than you have pots to hang on 'em, MnS!  :rofl: :taunt:

Reckon your right about the pots... & also about the making of them hangers... Young as I am, I have made more than most folks, myself.
 ;)



But....Never hurts to see an "old hand" do "his stuff", & see how he works though.
 :)



"Taunt" going back at ya.
 ;)


Forget about the pics..Ol' timer... Ya prolly broke all them old glass plates anyway.
LOL

Agreed. ;)

And, thanks for the encouragement, everyone. I'm pretty new to a lot of this stuff, so any advice/hints are welcome.  I'm gonna keep going back and doing these projects. I'm learning so much in the process. :)

I don't have the materials close at hand to make one right now...unless I sneak into a neighbors yard and cut up their stuff...

..but bonus brownie points if anyone can name that joint y'all are using on these hooks.

Be back later with the answer.

Hint: It's a timber framing joint that was first widely used in shipbuilding.  The USS Constitution has a number of those joints in her framing as well as her keel and they are still tight to this day.


Gryphon,
   You didn't come back to tell the name of the joint,& no one else tried to answer you, except for my "Clue" answer in the post I quoted below. So, I am going to say my answer would be a "tenoned scarf joint" . At least that is what I call them. The "scarf", was the clue about what you can wear around your neck.
;)


Is that what you call them? Or , do you have another name for that joint. I have found that sometimes different parts of the region, country, and around the world, have different names for the same thing sometimes. I'd be curious to hear about it, if you have another name for it.
:D


We always called it a "(Clue=item you can wrap around your neck)joint".
 ;)


Don't know if that is too much of a clue, but I could type the name, but I will wait for others. I have been doing carpentry as a business for some time, & found that different regions of the country call things different names.


But That is what I think most folks call that type of joint/joinery.
 ;)


I will wait to see if I am gonna get corrected.
 :)
