Wonderful net adventureR. Love the two kinds of wood idea. If I ever see the troll that lives under the bridge, he'll have a net just like that stuck in his belt.
When will you show us the next one?

I don't know Steven, I've got a great many branches in mind. I just have to go after them. Since I got my wife the Iwana for Christmas I was thinking rod holder. I have a pretty good idea for a holder. The magic wands of fun deserve there own place to rest.

3 nets again.jpg
These are three of my latest. The dark one is ironwood with one of Daniel's net bags, the others are ash with homemade bags I hand sewed from pieces cut from a decoy carrying bag.

This stain job was an accident. I wasn't happy with the original stain so as I sanded it off the deeper grain held onto it. It gave a rather plain frame some visual interest so I just finished over it.

My wife is a real smarty pants. When she saw these photos her comment was "If you spent a tenth of the time refinishing our kitchen table as you spent on your nets...". I gave her the obvious answer, "Hon, I can't take the kitchen table fishing!" :lol:
