That’s one cool fish. Although the fish looks none too happy your carving brought a smile to my face. Thanks for sharingyour work. Well done!

What kind of wood did you use?

Thank you.

He looks to me like he could be related to Charlie the Tuna, but I didn’t think tuna and trout were related!

Great Carving Skip!

That’s a nice pattern and a very good job on the carving of it. Congratulations.

Skip, This trout has character! Great job on the pose. What kind of wood is it? I looks like hardwood, was it difficult to carve?

Great piece of fun sculpture! Checked the other carvings. Nice. Soon you will have an aquarium? Went to an older friends graduation from grad school and one of his friends found I was a “woodworker”. Took me to his car and showed me a beautiful hand carved and painted fish lure. I’m thinking you could make one that would be next to real? Just a Sunday morning thought. LOL

She’s carved out of a Oak coffee table top that I found beside the road, it wasn’t difficult to carve I prefer hardwood, and yeah Docsalvage I have been thinking about trying custom Lure. Thanks everybody for the great comments, there are some really talented people on here. I’ll repost her when finished.

Skip if you like to carve hard wood you should try carving Beech wood. very nice to carve and it is light in color.
