Large Hoop, Wooden Landing Net: Steelheader with Carved handle

927-16:  This net combines many of my most complex construction methods and materials.   The handle is a solid piece of Texas ebony, that is joined to stacked strips of end cut bamboo.  The frame is a combination of highly figured Tiger striped maple and Texas ebony.  After I have constructed the net and frame,  I hand carve the handle into a complex sweeping curve.  The hoop measures 11.5 inches by 15 inches with  a 14.5 inch handle.  A unique gift for a unique person.
