I always wanted to try steam bending, so a few years ago I started making fishing nets. Now I have three hoop styles that I make. The one on the left is the rainbow edition, the middle one is the brookie, and the other is the big brown edition. I use walnut, ash, maple, cherry, & oak for the frames & a ghosts net bag.

During fishing season I always carry a few with me in my truck as I have found many clients along the stream.

Nice nets. I have to ask about the steam tube pic. What is sticking out the end? Looks like my MIG gun. Nets are on the short list of things I want to do this spring.

That is the handle on the end of my steamer. This was a picture of my first steamer, I have since changed my steamer setup I now use a turkey cooker with a pot that has a 2 inch radiator hose connected to it that connects into my steam tube.

They all look great and well made. Like the variety of styles. I’m sure they sell very well. Great job!
