took a wood planer and took even ammounts off where it was needed

took a palm sander and evened it all out

rough sanded everything that did not get carved down

applied two under coates of dull black spray paint

using stenciels put on one coat of flat white spray pain. havent finished it yet but planing on using matte clear finish

and its all done!

That's what I thought, very few of them made. An old St Huberts in original condition can bring between 10-15 grand!

Sorry man, that was a bit cruel.

Actually, I really like the look and was considering doing the same with my old Remington 788 in 22-250.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
