Niece's Magic Fish Hook
Built Maui's Magic Fish Hook (from Disney's Moana) for my niece Sophia for Christmas.
Started with a Stud!
Not this Stud...got to be safe though
Pencil in of the final shape and marking spots for dowel joints
Quickly threw together this doweling jig...worked like a charm
Lots of pressure
Time to bust out the jigsaw, it'd be nice to have that band saw right about now...the wife doesn't get Christmas hints.
Shaping, shaping, shaping...thank god I have nice neighbors for all the noise.
Shop Dog tax...and a messy garage.
Burning it in takes a long time.
A VERY LONG TIME...but side 1 is done.
And magically finished...this fish hook is Magic
Did a different pattern on the opposite side
Even wrapping took long...
Had to have her name in there
