This is a stylized fish cut from a single curly maple board measuring 48” x 6” x 1”. I had this board left over from a job and after staring at it for a few months, I decided to see if I could make a puzzle piece-together shape. I found a similar shape to this on the internet and altered it quite a lot to fit my taste. There was no mention of the author of the original so unfortunately I cannot forward the credit. I like the curves and the flow of this piece. I cut the shapes 3/4” deep with my cnc and then freed them from the board with my table saw. All the pieces fit back together with rounded dove tail joints.

Interesting (and well done) piece of art. How big is the finished piece?

It is 36” long, 16” tall and 3/4” thick. I forgot to mention that… it’s hanging above me right now.

CNC would be a fun tool to mess with. Looks great, well done.

I can’t even comprehend how one would program a cnc machine to cut these shapes, especially the dovetaials so they fit together so flawlessly.
