Tom, what are the rough dimensions of those glued up cork bodies with the wood bases.  Are they 4.75"x 6"x 12"?

larry the most narrow block is 7.5" and is 14 or a touch less long. The others I needed 1x10 stuff to bottom board putting them around 8 to 8.5" wide and 14" or a little less in length. All due to planing of the bottom board will top out at 3.5" or a little more. Better to be wide than tall when hunting the footprint floats your bird much higher negating the need for height, plus a relaxed bird is a wide bird.

Larry we like them a touch wider than life sized but not too much and we hunt them all. The guy who I am gluing and cutting them out for will be dragging them all over the country hunting in a very wide array of conditions. Might as well make them to meet the worst conditions. The best thing is I will get to hunt over them wherever he is working ;D

Tom, Those look really good, your buddy is going to have some nice blanks to start out with. Will he need deep keels on the wide body cork decoys to get them to self right?  Larry
