fishing net?

have any of you made a fishing net? i would like to make one for my father, i know you have to steam the wood 1 hr for every inch of wood. do i soak the wood, and would a 55 gal drum converted into a steamer work?

I have looked into the process but have not done it yet. Everything I have seen has the net being lamented out of thin strips of contrasting wood that are bent around a form, glued and clamped. IA quick google will give you the idea.

Issue 34 of Shopnotes magazine has full instructions of how to make a fishing net, including the bending jig etc.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
