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,

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

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.
