This one took me awhile to finish. I changed it up a bit and went with some thicker wood. I wanted more of a three D effect so the body is made of one inch stock, the head and rattle were made from two inch. It took a while to make the two flow together and the two inch lace wood was very slow to cut. I hand carved the tounge out of purple heart and is not glued so it can be removed. It is made out of lace wood, bass wood, walnut, purple heart, ebony, and cherry. I don’t know what I will do with it because my wife will not allow it in the house (she hates snakes) but it was a fun project to make.

I got a shelf it would really look nice on. Seriously – beautiful work.

Well Kory since your wife won’t let it in the house I must chime in like Bruce and offer to house it for you. Very nice project sir!

I agree you did a fantastic job on the snake but I can’t help you with storage either! Try checking out snakeshops or places where they sell the critters.
