When you are referring to making molds , are you looking to make machined aluminum molds that will last, or something out of bondo or Durham's wood putty?

See the above post.

 

I suggest trying to pour some baits in Lure Craft molds first before trying to make them.

 

Crankbaits made from wood are very tough for a beginner unless you are good at wood carving. Even if you are good at carving a lot goes into making a crankbait like ballasting, lip angle, sealing the bait, etc. If you are dead stuck on a wooden lure try making a topwater.
