Somehow I find these very appealing. I can only hope you have found a market for these? Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Very realistic looking fish, are you forced to catch the models for these carvings and thereby being tornbetween two wonderful activities; fishing and woodworking, or do you resort to pictures? Thank you for sharing. Been a couple of days since we saw any of those 10’ sturgeons around here though. LOL.

Your fish are awsome! I love to make fish also, carving is easy but painting them is the hard part for me. A lot of my fish end up swimming in my wood stove! You my friend ,have got it nailed! Excellent work ,I’m inspired to try again.

That is so cool! I was immediately attracted to your fish because they brought back fond memories of home – then I see you’re from Mystic. I live in Virginia now, but I’m a native of Old Lyme! (actually Point O Woods) I worked as a picture framer in Mystic for years! LOVE the fish!

Yea, I’m a better painter than woodworker. But Love em’ both. Almost as much as fishing. We’ll see about a market. ha. No way I can keep up with a guy who makes 2-3 of these a day. more like one in 2-3 days. Hey it’s winter and there’s no roofing right now. I have some giant “sea” things I’ll be carving this spring.
Rainman, Hey if you where closer You could carve & I’d paint. Sounds good to me.

Your fish are really detailed. You must do a lot of chiseling once you’re done with the chain saw! Great work. Thanks for posting.

Some are 100% Chain Saw Like the big one’s … Most of em’ after the big chain saw I hit it with a small chainsaw wheel… Proxon. I used to be a chainsaw purist.and can get get pretty good detail with it. It’s funny I’ve run into people who are CS purists. I see no evil in the mini chainsaw wheel. It’s actually a ton of fun. You can basically draw in wood with the proxon or lancelot chain saw angle grinders. Plus you don’t hit your shins with a 14” chain saw blade. That’s just not worth the art.
But the Large sae bass is 100% all 14” SthiL chain saw… No mini’s no chisels no wheelz.
Rock n roll This week I’m going to attempt some more realistic salt water species, in a more 3d form.Wish me luck.. & Thanks for the feedback
