Great White shark I made a while back, it was carved out of Popular tree I believe. Good friend had some trees fall and gave me the wood. The shark is at a good friends home. I stuck a turtle in its mouth during its completion just for fun. No turtles were harmed during this carving.

What can I say, just when you thought it was safe to go in the water again. Beautiful work.

I wonder if a couple of those in my yard would keep the seagulls away?

Great looking project! Thanks for sharing…

At first it was “Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water”
Now it is “Just when you thought it was safe to go into the woods”
Well done.

It’s never safe to go into the woods, I remember when I was making this and ripped a good shirt on the teeth.
Thanks guys

That would be awesome on a “man cave” wall …. and somewhat scarry too!

Really nice carving job and with the paint job looks very realistic.

great carving! I stink at the artsy stuff, but I may take a crack at this with a dried stump that is right off my patio because it looks so cool. Thanks for the inspiration.
