First post. New builder

Started playing around about 9 months ago making pencil poppers out of poplar dowels. Then started repainting old plugs. Finally got invited to use a friends lathe. Now I'm doing hand carves. This is my first one. Haven't hooked up yet but did get hammered by a 20lb class stripers. I was in a hurry and messed up the paint and epoxy but it's a proto anyway. It does have a real nice 3' glide on the walk the dog action.

Welcome to TU,be careful it will turn into an addiction,one you just can't shake.Your lure looks great,I have wanted to try one of the gliders for bass.I saw a video of one and the way those things walk the dog just under the surface would be killer on bass.....Robert

nice looking lure i recon that would do some damage with the pike over here,if i could say one thing though is that the hooks could do with being a bit bigger,would sure help the hook up's

I think the lures look great!

How did you weight them, and what kind of wood did you use?

Bezyb's probably right. I'd move up in hook size, as long as it doesn't affect the action, and the the hooks don't foul. I've found bigger Owner Stinger trebles had a short shank, but are really strong and sharp.

The wood is Fir (2x4). Weighted it with egg sinkers in different locations to get it to float with the butt just under water. She glides and slides on her side. I do need bigger hooks.
