Default Laminated Wood

Samiam sent me a laminated blank and said to do something with it. Sam: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the top is poplar, then walnut, red cedar, walnut and holly. Has about a dozen coats of lacquer on it.

Should be good as long as it is sealed well, poplar splits eaisily if not sealed well... Love the use of lacquer!

if sam could laminate the wood where in an L shape, - where the middle layer meets the eye and the top lays on top and backs down behind the eye and continues under the eye to the lip that would look sweet. i know it sounds confusing. i will have to make a diagram of sorts to explain me thinks.

I would think it would not sit properly in the water due to the different weights of the different types of wood.Looks nice though.

Not this one. This is the first plug that I've built that was strictly meant to be a piece of furniture... per say. I let the blank tell me how it wanted to be turned versus me turning the blank to what I thought would swim the best. This plug was built for pleasure and to see how "purty" I could make it look. It has wow factor, to more than fisherman, and the pictures don't do the finish justice. A dozen coats of lacquer with 400 grit between each coat. This one is going on the mantel. The lacquer did work really well, and I'm going to use it on some I plan to fish.

That said, it's probably the last I build this year where how it swims doesn't matter. I have the weighting, and lack of weighting, down on a few plug styles, but there is so much more to learn and figure out. Even when I think I have a style nailed down, I get rejects during sea trials. I've only been at this a couple years, and it will take constant experiments and prototypes to get as good as I'd like. That's part of the fun of making them. Like every hobby, some come out great and some don't......

Sorry for the late reply Rick,my computer crashed,so I havent been able to check out this site.You are right on the wood, from top to bottom its poplar,(heartwood from poplar has the greenish color like the back of baitfish)then,black walnut,cedar,walnut again then holly on the belly.I glued up another one for someone else just a little different,the cedar strips I made a little thinner so I could make the white strip on the bottom bigger,I use ash instead of holly,its white also.I hope he post a picture of it when its finished also.Thats a blue ribbon winner at the state fair for sure! Guys thats where I got the Idea somewhat.Someone had made a pepper grinder at this years sc state fair in the crafts section,,it was sharp he won,he only had TWO types of wood.heck I thought something made with four types of wood would be real neat,so I sent Rick a blank and hoped he would give it a try,and I am glad he did...Rick,that things sharp....sam
