Copying a Daiwa Double Clutch with King Billy Pine went well .

Punched out a 65mm lure for Insanity from the Huon Pine .
A natural colour was selected with a slim profile .

@TyennaDave . .

More nice work on the lures - those patterns are excellent thumbsupsmilie

Was that chunk you sent me king billy pine? Because it sands and smells a bit like a fine grained cedar. ???

Super nice tho and I decided to make a couple of bigger lures with it and added some 'dog' spots this morning on a couple of balsa trout creations . . .
+ some cake making lol

Yep the darker chunk i sent is the KB Pine MXB thumbsupsmilie
I really like the way it sands up and it also has good bouyancy .
Bloody oily timber too thumbsupsmilie
Hope your lures are coming along nicely ,good to hear a Spotted Dog is in the works not to mention the fish cakes

Yep a beautiful timber for sure and the oil clogged my anti cog sandpaper!!

I counted 43 growth rings (An old slow growing tree) on a section no bigger than a 50 cent piece when I sanded some back - really close grained and think I'll need to try and source some more wink wink

Lures coming along good thumbsupsmilie

Will post a few sneaky pics in the weeks to come once they are completed

@ Tyenna Dave

Very nice knock-off thumbsupsmilie , .......I find such slender lures quite difficult to copy from timber, as there's not much space left for a bib slot , .......you made it look so easy , great color pattern , too thumbsupsmilie !

Can't wait to see a few of your weapons MXB !
I didn't pay to much attention the the growth rings on the timber but it sounds as slow growing as the Huon .
Will have to check it out on the next peice i sand up :)
The slim profiles are a bit fiddly Deiter but worth the effort when they swim so well .
Beats paying $30 for a Daiwa aswell thumbsupsmilie lol

Guess , that I should give it a go on such slender lure types as well , ..............been casting a sinking "Rapala Magnum"(the model with the metal bib , about 14cms)quite a bit yesterday , ........I was very fond of it not overturning on each cast not tangling the belly hook with the leader , .........though 40$ are a good reason as well , I'd say lol .

So many plans , so little time , ........got about three dozens of unpainted/unbalanced blanks down the workshop , ........no time for painting , as I'm always carving new ones -duh -duh -duh !

Been busy carving up some King Billy Pine but the first two lures were produced from Flash's lure duplicating machine :D
A handy peice of kit that i have been busy replicating .My machine should be going in the next week or so smckin
Here is just a few ...
I got these two 70mm lures as blanks from the duplication machine ,turned out rather snazzy too with a very nice tail dancing action ...
Image

Green Machine !
Image

A 50mm Balsa/Epoxy number that has a very fine tight shimmy ,static too and runs to around 4-5' :D
Image

Another static unit that dives to around 6' with a fast action and is 55mm long .No epoxy coats on this one as yet .
Image

A 50mm shallow runner with a big rock and roll action .Runs around 2-3' .
Image

80mm deep diver in "Tequila Sunrise" .Sinking number with what i call the perfect action .
Rock and tail whip combined ;)
Image

80mm naked King Billy Pine extra deep diver .Still requires its last coat of epoxy and is sanded back ready for re-coating in this pic .
Dives harder than any pro soccer player lol
The natural stain around the head area also freakishly worked out to be in the exact right place to segment the head from the body thumbsupsmilie
Image

Image

50mm KBP minnow that dives to around 5' .
Image

Good bye blisters when this machine gets going :D
