Is a couple of things I’ve carved the last few weeks a lobster made out of Poplar and a sea turtle made out of Poplar the lobster took about 45 hours to complete and the sea turtle took about 17 hours joy doing them both, I just thought I would share them with you all.

We agree with Porchfish. Your next project should be building a million gallon aquarium to display all your sea life! The lobster and turtle are both terrific.

Skip, are you sure you didn’t just draw a lobster on a board and then take a picture of a real lobster! :)

That is fantastic! Well done!

That’s really nice work, Skip.
