I bought the Rockler steaming kit and decided to make some fishing nets for Christmas presents. I found an article with lots of details that helped me get started.

Turned out to be a really fun project and I got to use up some smal cut offs that I had laying around for the handles. I bought the net bags from Jann’s Netcraft.
