Wow Kevin, great work. What is the wood and finish?
Kevin Graybeal   [Mar 28, 2011 at 01:58 PM]
Thank you Kerry. The wood is fiddleback Santos Mahogany, trimmed with buffalo horn, copper and aluminum. The finish is CA. Since I knew that these materials would be heavy, I bored them out to 3/4in and glued them onto a dowel of basswood prior to turning. It's actually very lightweight considering the materials used. Reel seat and fighting butt soon to follow, and will be made of the same materials/theme.

Kevin you did a heck of a nice job on it. I have been using CA and learning as I go.
