I wanted to see how close I could come to reproducing a lure. So, I opened one of my books to any page at random and picked out a picture to copy.
Here are the results. I did it all free hand (or free sight) as I don't really have all the equipment to do things properly.
I know the center section is a bit too thin but other than that, I am pretty satisfied.
Do you think I should paint this lure or just leave it natural? The wood is redwood.
I have no intension of selling these "reproductions" - I am strictly trying to learn how to turn different items.
