Wow, Chad, gorgeous, sets a mark for me to aspire to... I've built a half-dozen rods so far, mostly for function but I've done a few simple weaves and spiral wraps.

Chad: I received the second book yesterday Saturday (Custom Rod Thread Art). This book I find is the meat & bones to designing the thread art, although it was published in 1982 it is still great information and learning. I don't know that ill be up to doing such intricate work as you have shown us here but with practice I'm sure ill get there.

This winter you have given me something to read an benefit by. Thank You!

Great job, Chad...

Best,

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

Nice ulu (breadfruit) tree there too.  Not tall and spindly like the ones around here.

Thank you Fred and John.

I call that the chicken tree.. Cheesy

We live in a semi-rural area near farmland, so it is not uncommon to find wild chickens roosting in the lower branches.

Maybe that is one reason the Ulu tree appears to be so robust?.. Wink I do not know.

Nice job Chad! Wink

Thanks Joe, it's only a static test, but I do find them strangely relaxing.

Probably because the work is done outdoors; rather than hunched over a workbench counting threads..Wink

P.S. Glad to see you on here!

Choosing a guide wrap--test patterns done for comparison.
I decided to go with a variant of the last version, under-wrapped with the same JT Dragon-scales used for the grips:







Laying out the under-wraps for each guide:



Adding inlays to the double over-wrap--"A" over "A", with "A" under:

Nice work Chad!

That rod turned out beautifully.  A lot of detail there, and those colors look great together.

Chad; Great to see your work,I have another rod on the lathe and I was stuck on what design to do. That rod you finished inspired me to get going on mine.
