View PostAs I do not have a Big O plug to hold in my paws, what is the length and top width of that puppy? headscratch.gif

 

seven inches long, 1 inch wide, 1.5 height, keep the top of your lip narrower then the body, so as no to protrude the sides, you might want to go through with a gill, the bottom portion of the lip should be just a little wider, then the fattest part of the plug, two inch lip, one inch in the wood, big metal lip means you will not need any lead, play with the shape, lets see what ya got, your carving from last week is what is going to put the thing over the topbiggrin.gif

Got an old computer, so the surf chat thing does not work for me frown.gif I'll have to watch from the sidelines. Good looking stuff so far! Couple pointers for the newer builders, draw the lip angle when you trace the plug and then cut the lip slot before you shape it. Much easier to get it straight if the blank is still square.
