Tiny Twitch Baits with Flashabou

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Tiny Twitch Baits with FlashabouOut in the shop today. Decided to make a sort of little twitch baitfor early in the season when Ice goes out in the spring here at the lake. It's about fifteen degrees here in Maine today.These are very small, but with a little detail. Hard to work on, carve, detail painting, etc,as they're about the size of my little finger. A little flash to them using some rubber skirt material.
They sink head down with their tail ends pointed up. The flashabou tries to float and waves in the current.Hoping to twitch them andentice (maybe annoy) a few nesting bass in the spring maybe.Anyway, made of white pine and painted with an air brush. I make everything but the hooks.. .and for this one I decided to use up some eyes I had around instead of making them. A video of the build.

Linens CabinetMy wife asked me to build a linens cabinet for her, and this is what I came up with. Built with pine, 30-1/2 inches wide by 13-7/8 inches deep by 67-3/4 inches high. It has three spacious shelves on the top and two on the bottom, plus two roomy drawers. She already has it filled and wants me to make another one.

Articulated Dragons - (John Hutchinson Design)

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Articulated Dragons - (John Hutchinson Design)Many thanks to fellow LJ John Hutchinson for this design and for sharing it with fellow woodworkers. I've always thought these dragons were awesome since I first saw the feature in Woodworkers Journal but I didn't have the skill or equipment to tackle this. Now a few years later with a thickness planer, a better bandsaw, and a bit more experience I decided to try building one for my grandson Owen's 3rd birthday. When I started out I was going to build 2 pretty much the same with the bodies made from sapele that I had in the shop, the first being a prototype in case I made any mistakes. I soon realized that I needed more contrast so I added some cherry that I also had and was kind of on my way to making 3. I proceeded with one sapele, and one cherry, purpleheart head and tail, leopardwood and cocobolo wings, walnut hips, zebrawood wheels on one, butternut on the other. After completing the first one (sapele) I decided to add some roundovers on the cherry version that I completed and shipped off to Owen in time for his birthday.The third dragon took shape a couple weeks later when I was isolating in the basement (conveniently near my shop) after my wife contracted covid. It was a great distraction to keep my mind occupied during a very stressful time and I decided that this one would be our household 'protector dragon'. She recovered just fine and I never contracted it so I think it worked!By the way, I did everything on the bandsaw including the 'wing bones'. I used spray adhesive to laminate 6 layers of 1/8” cocobolo and cut all 6 at one time using a 1/8” blade and Carter stabilizer guide on a 14” bandsaw. Dropped the whole cut 'assembly' into a dish of mineral spirits and they slid right apart. Similar process for the 1/4” leopardwood wings but I did those as 2 sets of 3 layers each.
