I stole this idea from my buddy rooster….what can I say…a good idea is a good idea! The sea critters are all made from shorts of cherry, maple, and black walnut. I used the transition from heart wood to sap wood in the walnut to give the fish some additional color contrast. One magnet is supper glued/screwed into the fishing rod hook and metal washers are screwed to the nose of each fish/crab/lobster/turtle. This was a fun project, but after building 5 sets for Christmas presents, I am glad to be done.

One set would have been awesome, 5 sets put you up there close to sainthood! Great project!

This is awesome. I made a set of fish for my son, but they were flat. Yours are way cooler.

Nice job! I love this version. It puts my project of painted pine to shame.
