What materials did you use? This weaving hook is designed for loading warp threads on a loom. It will suit any reed size down to 10 D.P.I. The hook itself I have made using old steel wire which I have straightened out, hammered flat then ground down and filed to form the hook. The handle I have turned from a piece of African padauk wood, and finished with one coat of Danish wood oil. Full length - 18.2cm or 7 3/16" Handle length - 8.2cm or 3 1/4" Wood - African padauk - Pterocarpus soyauxii Hook - recycled steel
