Base is from a Pine Justin cut down yesterday and lopped the dry pegs from a dead standing Pine.
Shaving the backside would have gone faster if I started with the fatter end then worked on the knots after checking.
I started on the skinny side that made a huge gap which led to more shaving for a learning lesson.

I cut this green pine branch and split it down the center. The split branch was a little crooked, so I cut and saved the straighter half.

Four holes were drilled using a 1/2" auger, then cleaning the holes with my pocket knife.

The hangers were chosen from a dry oak branch, and hammered in place using my new mallet.
