About our Nets

The nets that I build are made from all reclaimed wood.  I utilize local hardwood that I salvage in log form, mill into lumber, air dry for several years.   I utilize unique character of the grain for handle inserts and mix a variety of woods that contrast eachother. 

 

The "River" series of nets are completely unique- each stripe is a free hand cut on the bandsaw and glued back together.    No two will ever be alike.  I use up to ten coats of a fine semi gloss hand rubbed oil and the highest quality net material to complete each net.  Each net is numbered and comes with a tag identifying the woods and date. 

 

Nets are offered in 4 sizes, the "Headwaters,"  "Colorado Special" , "Spring Creek," and the "Pennsylvania Drifter"  long handled boat model.  I do not offer custom work at this time and availability is by batch- I often make 6-8 at a time and will list them on the "Available Nets" pages.
