Crochet Hook Gallery

From the page links below, you can pick the individual hooks that you want. Turn of the Century handmade wooden crochet hooks are available in sizes F, G, H, I, J & K and the large hooks in sizes from N through S. Each hook is individually freehand crafted by William Schmidt.

6 Crochet hooks

Most of the F-K hooks are made of hard, high quality exotic hardwoods for beauty and strength. The large hooks N-S are made from fine, strong, domestic hardwoods They are 7 to 7-1/2 inches long. The hooks shown on the pages below have been picked at random from our stock. These particular hooks will only be available on the web.

The following links to the Gallery Pages allow you to pick specific hooks. Because of the proportions of the F-K hooks, only the design portion is pictured. The hooks are numbered with a corresponding list identifying the wood by hook number.
The wood list should appear beside the picture of the hooks. On some mobile devices with vertical screens, it may appear below the picture. In such cases, be sure to match the number on the picture with the number on the wood list. Saves a LOT of confusion.
There is only ONE of each hook available. If it is marked as "SOLD" on the wood list, it is gone.

PRODUCTION NOTE -- 5/8/2021--- As Mark Twain once said "rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggurated".
In this case, with some justification. The last post was in September.
2021 being my 50th year of professional woodturning, I took the proverbial "long winter's nap" - not working in the shop for nearly two months, then working only on special orders - practice for actual retirement, as if craftspeople can actually DO that. But the time is getting closer. I'm 75, older and stiffer and STILL haven't visited the Grand Canyon.
ALL THAT ASIDE: I finally made some size "P" (10mm) hooks and have them on the Large Hook Page. I got carried away and put 84 hooks on the listing. To make it easier to correlate the hooks in the pictures with the accompanying wood lists, each large hook size now has its own page (linked FROM its size on the Large Hook Page). Hopefully, this will make things more manageable.
The Site Map lists the main pages and all the gallery pages for your convenience. There's lots of stuff to pick from.
If you have a gmail address, include your phone number in any emails you send me. Seems Google (with great reliability) throws my return emails into a "spam" folder - someplace - without the courtesy of informing either you or me. To remedy this, I have opened a gmail account to be able to communicate to you, and even those sometimes go missing. so a phone number will be a backup if I do not hear back from you. Or.... after 4-5 days of no reply, call me. Leave a message if we do not pick up.
I thank all of you for your patience.... and perseverence

Hope you all have a wonderful and productive year, and above all, stay healthy. Even if you are vaccinated, protect those around you. Wear that facemask - over your nose too, so it does some good - Bill
PS: In web browsers (Mozilla (Firefox), at least) doing "Control +" enlarges the screen image, "Control -" shrinks it. Makes details (and type) easier to see.
