you aren't hooked quite yet Milia... JUST WAIT 'TIL YOU LAND A FISH ON THAT LURE! Then it's on! You'll soon learn half the fun is building crazy inventions to help you build lures. lure turners, lure makers, paint stencils, the list goes on and on! Pete is probably one of the most inovative people on this site when it comes to lure gizmos.

Oh heck yeah! I'm on the learning curve baby! It took 4 hours and 3 bent or broken scroll saw blades to rough out my first lure. Just now I did my second one in under 30 minutes!

Did I mess up ?? I wanted to water proof my lures for testing. I couldnt find any D2T like you guys talk about so i dot some Gorilla Glue & mixed it with alcahol to thin it out and painted the wood with it.. it looks like I stained or varnished the wood ...Is what i did OK ..?? Did I screw it up ??? any opinions ??

Gorilla glue is waterproof. As long as you paint over it, it won't matter.

I never thought about using Gorilla Glue as a wood sealer. Makes sense. That's a clever idea.
Thanks for the tip.
I already use it to laminate wood for thicker blanks for gliders and swimbaits.
If you moisten the wood before you apply the glue, it will soak in more deeply. When I use Gorilla Glue in residential construction, that's how I make sure to get a good bond. Glue on one face, moisten the other, and then clamp, firm but not super tight. Otherwise, you'll have a starved glue joint that won't hold.
You should be able to clean the brown off you fingers with acetone, too.

Well how about that! I guessed right ! Like the old saying goes "even a blind dog finds a bone once in a while" I should have noted in my first post that I used the waterproof Gorilla glue that dries white mixed about 50/50 with alcahol. It didn't dry white, it has more of a cleAr look to it.
