I don’t even know what cnc is. I drew it, I carved it.

Superb, Steve and the wood grains really simulate the movement in water. Nicely done! By the way, you are an artist in wood and should be aptly proud of your gift, talent, imagination and the skills to achieve outstanding work of art. I hope you won’t be tempted by the use of CNC in woodworking. While CNC has it’s place in other uses and I am certainly not belittling those, but IMHO, what it produces is not art nor should be regarded as such. After a true work of art is created by a human artist, a CNC – a robot – can be used to make unlimited number of copies or duplicates. But they are definitely not the original nor made by flesh and blood. I am not opposed to showing of CNC products on LJ, but they should be so identified so that we won’t be misled in thinking that it was an original human creation. ‘Nuf said, IMHO.

The fish on the left gets dinner I think, the guy on the right is carved right out of a meal.
