Crappie Swimbait

This is a 6" crappie swimbait made entirely of natural wood. There is zero painting on this bait. Every detail was inlaid with a scroll saw. It is made from five different kinds of wood: maple for the belly, pine for the yellow of the upper back, green poplar for the back, walnut for the head and tail, and ebony for the black spots. I had to do everything twice to make two sides, and I joined the two sides with a center core of maple and poplar.

Wowww, how did you embed the ebony?

It's done with a scroll saw by stacking two different kinds of wood on top of each other and drilling a very small hole that you can put the saw blade though. You have to tilt the table of the saw at around 3 degrees so that after cutting out whatever shape you want the bottom piece fits into the top board with zero gaps. I filled the hole drilled in each piece with glue and ebony dust.
