About This Class

In this class, I'll demonstrate the steps to make a drive hook.  Similar to the S-hook, a drive hook has one side to hang things on while the other side is akin to a nail, meant to be driven into a wall or post as a means of attaching the hook.

This class will build on lessons 1 and 2 and I'll use a bending fork (lesson 2) in this lesson.  Additionally I'll introduce twisting.
