I picked up some Cedar and American white Oak the other day, will have to try to make a nice lure with just a clear coat finish -hmmthink hopefully i don't waste the wood -wowoh Where did you get your Cedar from Adam? I picked up this wood from Otto's hardware store in Stepney, they have some nice wood there but it can be expensive. Need to make a clear coated lure with black Walnut, very $$$$$ $$$$$ $$$$$ lol Would look nice though.

Dan,

What's the cedar cost.
I'm lucky as me oldman stores all his in my shed and he rips it to size for me.
He busted me using a plank of Malaysian timber as a ramp for the wheelbarrow once.
Not happy.

Steve.
