RBT, your hazel rod rests are superb!
May I ask for how long you season your wood, before you remove the bark from the forks, if at all?
And then how long to they take to dry sufficiently to varnish them?

I have a couple of prospective hazel rests lashed to a straight edge, to dry in the greenhouse, along with a cherry wood rest.
But mine will never be as good or as straight as yours. There is a dearth of pollarded hazel in these parts.
