Here is another net that I made recently. The padauk was very hard to work with as it is very hard and doesn’t bend well. Enough clamps and some good adhesive for veneering does the trick. My jig is just made of 3/4” MDF coated with varnish so it doesn’t soak water when it is bent.

Great looking landing net—particularly like your choice of woods!

Thanks for viewing. I buy the net bags from brodindirect.com. They are about $25 a piece.
