Hi all,
Thanks for looking. Took on a new project recently as a bday gift to my brother. Took a few tries to iron out some kinks, but it seems I've figured out a workable equation. I still need to poly and attach the nets. Thanks for looking. Let me know if you have any advice / suggestions on alterations, etc.

Those are really nice…

How well do they hold up to the elements?

I really appreciate the craftsmanship…

Looks really awesome. You might consider adding a hole or ring at the bottom of the handle for attaching a lanyard or way to hang it.

Thanks, all.

Sniper John - Thank you for the comment. Actually, the picture I posted is from when I raised the grain, not after applying finish. I added a hole after this picture for a lanyard, etc. I've since added finish and am now finishing up the poly coats.

SnakeWrangler - Thank you - as for durability - the short answer is these are the first ones I've made... so we shall see. The longer answer is that wooden nets have been functional and durable for a long time, so I suspect they will stand up just fine, at least as far as function is concerned. Banged on rocks or dropped certainly would be the best thing for the finish, but I suspect that applies to any net. With these, a little sanding and finish could quickly bring it back to beauty.

Very cool.

You might really be on to something here, I could see a big market for those. Good luck is you decide to take it commercial.

Very nice.
Did you take any pictures of the process? I would love to see how you got to this point.
And finish pictures would be awesome.
