As I mention in my previous post, after working the Attila Veneno concept phase, I began to work to prepare the “How To Do” videos series to explain and show the steps I followed to made this Darter lure. I tried to count the time that took me each step, but it was not easy and possible, because I only go down to my shop whenever I have some spare time. Even though I tried, still I can’t say how much time do I need to make each wooden plug. On the other side, what I can tell you is that I have lot of fun doing this hobby, and I would love to have more skills with wood working and some power tools to be able to do more lures.
Well going to the point, I think “Part 1” and “Part 2” will contain the main building steps until I got the raw version of the Attila Veneno Prototype. “Part 3”, will be focused to show the finishing steps, which includes some complementary materials for my wooden lure. After watching this series, you will figure out that each wooden plug I made is one of a kind. I make them manually, they could see similar, but they are not identical. Given the previous, I put a unique number to all the wooden Attilas I made.
Let me tell you what were the materials and tools I used: Materials until I got the Prototype: Balsa wood (4mm thick), Stainless steel wire (dia 1mm), Stainless steel ball bearings, Lead, Crazy glue, Wood cement, Baking soda, and Epoxy resin. Tools: Steel ruler, Sharped cutter, Vernier or Caliper, Pliers, Square ruler, Saws, Drill, Sand paper, sanding jigs, Wood rasper
Before to say goodbye, please let me know your thoughts, whether you liked the video or not. In addition, in case you have any recommendation to improve the Attila Veneno let me know, I will be very grateful.
