OOPS, SHit, Damn. Thats what I say too, That's Really a bitch. The pic is a bit fuzzy, but that Little fuzzy thing on the bottom looks like it goes somewhere else. Drop back, rearrange and re-design. But wait for the master ponamu teacher to arrive on the scene and evaluate the situation.
OOuchhh!

Darn breaking tiki carvings. Can you make a shorter hook out of it? That Koa is beautiful wood, and you are doing a great job with it.

John

Lots of breaks lately.. So sad.

I think the broken one could be fine with a little shaping.. I'd say clean up the broken end, notch it and wrap it.

Hey pdrake. Happy new Year!

Sorry to see/hear of the breakages; damn! Id take the advice above & simply salvage what you can of the first one (if it werent shown here, no one would ever know...), matau/hooks come in all shapes & sizes.

I hope the same doesnt happen again; I can see a couple areas that are probably bordering on being a bit thin also, doh! My fingers are crossed for you. Be sure to learn from the experience(s?)

Love the 'flame'? in the koa Moai, Im assuming it has a shimmer/chatoyant effect?

Re: the 'end' of hook. Do you mean 'koru'/spiral? A very nice example.

Tama

Yes, it hides but is BEautiful when you Do See it.
Looks like you found a great way to fix/save your broken hook. Perhaps the fellow who did that piece did it for the Same Reason. Thanks for the link to the Sinew I have some on the way.
Ditto what Tama said about the thin shanks of your new hooks. Looks like hey are begging for a fall to that one spot on your floor..Cover it quick!
The Koa is Beautiful!.

heh, yeah, i'm getting that a lot about that small one. it's for a female so i made it small. it's almost done and the thin part will be lashed.

the end part of the hook is called "the snood". no wonder i couldn't remember. i'm not going to drill a hole through the snood to lash it, just put in a groove on the back side.

here it is at the final polishing stages.
