I would like to make a couple of walleye cranks to run in 5 to 15 feet of river water. If anyone here walleye fishes, what crankbait would you recommend that I copy. I would like to stay at 3.5 inches to no less than 2.5 inches. And also would you recommend cedar or not. Any help would be appreciated. I've done alot of looking at commercial lures but $6.00 to $8.00 each would be costly experimenting.

That looks great .I would think that would work just fine. I would probably have to downsize it. How deep does it run. Also would it troll ok?

To be honest I was more kidding than serious because I think you wanted a lure to catch walleye, not one that looks like a walleye. If you are interested, check out the link to the lure below. It is a 7" twitch bait made with cedar. I don't troll with it but suspect it would run 6 to 10' depending on how much line you have out. Lip design could be modified to achieve more or less depth. I generally throw bigger lures for musky, but have often caught incidental walleye catches on big baits, especially when night fishing.
