Not 100% sure but I think it's maple. The grain looks like ash but it's too heavy and there's no pith so I'm going with maple. It's one I cut a few years ago and apparently forgot to mark. Because of the weight, I decided to shave the whole thing down with my spokeshave which meant tons of sanding to get rid of tool marks.Took the head down a bit more from pic 3 to pic 4. It's had its first coat of poly. I guess it's more of a cleek than a crook.

Nice looking natural shepherds hook. How long is it ddw2. The smaller hook was used to catch sheep by the leg.

Thanks, Randy. It's about 49" high. Took it for a short walk the other day. It has a real nice swing to it.
