Hello everyone.
Several months ago I decided to try making a fishing net. So I read the various signs and put to work.
I have no possibility to bend with steam, so only got two weeks soaking strips algarrobo and pine laminate thought. I noticed that if the wood is well cut the grain does not break when bent (despite being algarrobo is hardwood). You always have to do it carefully.
So get to put everything together, gluing, drying wait, make the handles (cedar), sand, etc.
Finally finished and had everything I needed … the net?. My brother offered to do in exchange … one for him!. The change suited me because I had never done anything like that.
Finally several coats of varnish, and I really like the finished product.
The whole process took me a LONG time. Because I was with little free time and the network was another long processed. But finally I have this to show you.
In several parts of laminated not stick well because I had a few presses, and also gave it shape without a mold, but as a first attempt I think this pretty well.
Thanks for looking, and any comments or indication is beneficial.

They look great! How much better they will look with a hefty fish inside. :-)

Very nice! What fish do you use them for? Do you have trout in your part of Argentina?
