“Two mistakes I made when I started making handmade lure”


Everyone doesn’t want to fail at first.

Of course I am, but I often fail. lol

This time I would like to introduce my failure story so I hope it will be helpful.

Be reading this article

I think you can avoid things that might fail in production.

No.1 The story is solid wood.

Every tree will be together.

At first I thought, but the tree I bought at the beginning was really hard and the blade was broken.

It’s much harder than I think of a tree.

Depending on the type, some wood is difficult to even cut rather than cut.


As  a countermeasure, I arrived at balsa wood while trying various woods.

The balsa wood is soft and easy to process, and the work progresses smoothly.

Of course, softness has weakness because it is weak, but it is covered by another process such coating.

No.2 A story that I went to buy because my hands stopped in places due to lack of tools.

When I tried to cut it, I went to buy without sawing, and when I tried to cut, I went to buy without a file…

I didn’t have what I needed, so I was stuck each time it happened.

I’m always random…
