these can be positioned on posts ,but look great swimming through the corners of houses.Especially when there’s a whole school of them.I love to carve so that part of the animal is missing.Peoples imaginations always make up the rest,and it seems to save a lot of time carving.This two piece fish is red cedar driftwood.I didn’t put a finish on it, so it would weather gray.I make these in all sizes.This appears to look like about a 40 pounder.

“SAM” was attached by countersinking holes in the top and bottom at about a 45degree angle and using wood screws.

Ha, it’s one of those few that I say to myself. I should have thought of that….. Sign of one groovy artist.
If I only had a beam I’d make one for my house. :( No beams. That is very cool, going in the memory bank.
