Recently made a set of landing nets from leftover Aspen and Mahogany scraps from a skin on frame canoe build and thought I would share.

Very smart. If the weather gets very bad, you will be able to use the patterns for making snow-shoes!

Very nice looking. How do you add the nets to the wood?

In the pic with the router table I am using a 1/8” slot cutter and a run arm to cut a slot 1/8” deep. Then drill holes in this slot. Be sure to count the net loops and measure for even spacing. Then put net loop through hole and run your thread of choice through loop till you have sewn net to handle. I used the same sinew as the canoe on one and mason line on the other.

Thanks. Im actually on to building boat #4.
I struggled with determining if I was a boat builder after completing #1 or if I was just a guy who had built a boat. So I’ve opted to just keep build them. ;)
