It's still in progress. I started my first shepherd's crook for a client a couple days ago.
Right now we're still discussing spacers and shank choices.
Here are a few progress pictures.
The handle is spalted oak from a big cluster of branches, it's very burl like. The spacer is a holly sample for the customer to look at and the shank is domestic hazel. Nowhere near British standards but the longest and straightest I've gotten yet. This is after straightening what I could.
It's a fun project.
