This is another pair of Christmas presents made last year. It was my first time with bent lamination and also with a scroll saw. I was a little nervous starting out on this one since I thought the glue up may be a nightmare. It was messy for sure, but not that bad really. I was also debating whether to follow the plan (wood magazine) and make the fish inlay or leave well enough alone but I’m glad I took the plunge and gave it a try. I actually lost one of the fish for several days and finally found it just before starting to make a new one. The other funny thing with this was with the nets. I bought two of the same net from Bass Pro Shop. I counted the loops on one of the nets and then set out and drilled the appropriate amount of holes (after taking the time to make sure they were evenly spaced) in both frames. I’ll be damned if one of nets didn’t have an extra loop!!
