Cut your bait out on a saw. Take a carving knife and knock of the sharp edges. The rest is 150 grit sandpaper.

Skeeter is right. Now you can use a lathe to make a long skinny minnow bait. I personaly dont do that, so I cant give you any answers to that.

I cut my lure out of balsa 3/4 inches thick with a scroll saw. I also cut the lip slot for the lure as well. I then take a wood file and file down the corners on a 45 degree angle all the way around. Then sand it down starting from a gritty paper to a finer paper. You can also use the wood file to shape the lure more as well if you choose, But I leave my lures flat sided. Cody
