Nothing too fancy here, a different snowflake design than the previous ones I cut out of Holly and a Maryland blue crab cut from Chatke Viga so it looks pretty close to the cooked color of a Maryland summertime favorite treat. Both were triple thick cut (.25” each) to make more people happy and finished with satin spray lacquer.

These are cool. I did almost that exact same crap for a friend out of just oak. She loves Oak. I added eyes (cylinders) made from Ebony.

Growing up in Southern Maryland (Charlotte Hall), I can appreciate this! Living in the mountains now I miss those crabs. Nice job!
