I've got a few hours invested in this rod and no parts on the blank, but here's where I am now.
I got the logo from Thomas and Thomas and scanned it. I then printed it out.
I took the printed version and using a T Square, made a grid on the picture. This is so I can draw it on very large graph paper. I numbered the grid across one side and lettered the grid on the other. Then I took thread like I will be using for the weave and calculated how many threads I want to make the weave's width.
Once I know how many threads I want the weave to be, I mark the big graph paper for how many threads per square on the printed logo. In this case it was 4. I use this to freehand the final version.
This next photo is the completed drawing. You have to keep in mind when you are doing them that this is a weave and not a drawing, so some adjusting may be needed to accommodate fitting the squares on the grid.
Next I color the squares that will be the pattern. If a square is less than half in the pattern I don't color it. If it's more than half I do. In the case where it hits the square right in half, don't color it, then step back and look at it. Some of the half squares need to be colored, some don't so it's a judgment call there.
This is the completely colored pattern and there were a couple adjustments made to make it look right.
The next thing you do is start on one side and number all the squares in the pattern, then do the same down the 90 off side.
The numbers along the left side of the photo above represent threads. The numbers along the bottom of the photo above represent steps (turns). The next step is to make the 'Left List' Go to turn 1, and then write the threads that will be in the pattern on turn 1.
I write this down different than the way most do. I do it like it's punctuation in a sentence. In the Doc Ski manner, step 1 woul be, 35.41 but I do it 35,41. As you can see in step 4, there is a gap in the threads that are in the pattern. So I write it as 24,37.40,53 like you would as each group is a sentance. I know it's backwards of the way most do it but I like it better and as long as you know if you buy a pattern it's likely to be the other way.
Even with multi color weaves the pattern is done the same way. When I make the left list on multi color weaves, I write it the same way and do the thread numbers on the list in the color the threads should be or in colors to represent the real color. In the Wild logo, Green was the background color so that is the thread you wrap the rod with and weave the pattern through. I used red, black and blue ink pens to represent white, red and yellow threads in the weave.
I finished turning the top grip. The quality of the cork is pretty good but not as good as the stuff I used on my Meiser. I am going to have to do some fill work on this one. As soon as I have that done I will assemble the handle on the blank.
