It has been a while since I finished this piece and it made its home on the wall of its owner. It was a challenge from start to finish with a lot of prep work and research.
It is the largest project (outside of the tables and chairs I have made) I have created. It is also one of the most fun projects I have done. While working on this outside in the evenings and on weekends, it was a great conversation piece as folks in the neighborhood would wonder what I was making. I received a lot of compliments and encouraging words. The encouragement was wonderful and much needed at certain times when I would loose faith in my ability.
Even though it has been a while, I wanted to finally post the project from start to finish. I started a video page on youtube.com for the various projects and outings. Future videos will feature flies I am tying or lessons on fishing techiques.
So sit back and enjoy the video and leave a comment or like on the blog, these help me out a lot and as always, thank you so much for your continued support!
