Pot Hanger

Made myself a take apart pot hanger today while i was up the woods, the hanger is not the best I've ever made, partly due to the material choice i made, but where we were, the choice was limited to say the least, mainly big tall Ash trees and very little if any suitable trees, such as Hazel, so i had to make the best of a bad job, but hey, isn't that part of the fun?

I had to whittle one piece down as the branch was curved and a good joint would not have been possible, but once done the positioning of the joints was pretty simple, once done, a wedge was cut and a channel carved in the sticks to accept it, considering the poor materials, it turned out OK, i may make a better one this weekend though, i know where there is a lovely piece of Blackthorn that would do the job superbly.
