    This is 3 1/4" walleye bait made from red cedar.

  6. thru wire.JPG

    The strips are made from the same wood as the blank. They are cut with a table saw a fraction less than the width of the blade used to make the slot. The picture here shows how I trace the wire tag ends on the end pieces. I cut along this line with a skill saw so that the wood fits tight against the wire inside the bait. They then get dry fitted and pressed into place. Then draw a line flush across the belly where the access wood gets cut off with a skill saw. You end up with puzzle pieces that fit perfectly. I pour epoxy into the slot and also apply thin coats to the strips before inserting them into place. The epoxy oozes out and can be a bit messy as I smooth it over with a latex glove finger. It fills any gaps, or air voids in the process. I like using this method to minimize the amount of epoxy or resin material that can separate over time as the wood expands and contracts. Hope this makes sense.
