This is the favorite present of the group I just posted, Thought some of you would be interested too. The idea just popped into my head and had to try making one. I grabbed a half block of wood and cut as large a timber as possible and drew the side curved view, after that was cut out the top view, took a few tries to look like a fish. The rest was shaping and drilling the hole. Quess what, didn’t balance worth a hoot and was unstable. I thought it wasn’t big enough so I went and got a bigger block of wood and made a much bigger one, It was not that great either. After scratching my head a bit to stir up the thin grey matter, I thought it may work with the tail area flattened out. Well it worked so well I decided to flatten the smaller one. Stable now, I liked it better so finished for their gift. A friend came by and was so excited I gave it to him, he makes wine in two liter bottles.
Hope some of you try making one, Maybe as a present too, Christmas is coming. It looks so cool as if the fish is jumping.
Thanks for looking, comments are welcome.
