Hello all, it’s been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done. This one took AWHILE to finish because it was 341 pieces and a lot of them where very small. I spent a lot of time down on my hands and knees looking for a piece I dropped.

This one was made for a friend of my wife’s husband for their anniversary. Between the both of them all the information I had to go on was “he’s into diving”. With all that information it was really easy to come up with a pattern lol. After thinking about it for a while I thought it would be cool to make a diving mask and a seascape in it like your looking through it. After that I did some research on the fish and surroundings because I did not know much about those things. I made the pattern and went work on the piece it has two angel fish, three clown fish, and one trigger fish. It is hard to see but each side view of the little clown fish have 19 different pieces with four differents woods. When I was working on it I talked to my brother and he suggested putting a strap on it to complete the piece. I hope it worked.

It ended up being 2 foot wide and 1 ½ tall and had 22 different kinds of woods. It was made with aspen, blood wood, bocote, bubinga, butternut, cherry, cocobolo, curly maple, ebony, hackberry, koa, lace wood, lignum, mahogany, osage, pine, purple heart, Spanish cedar, teak, walnut, wenge, yellow heart. I usually don’t like a gloss finish, but I thought it would work because it would look wet.

AMAZING.. using the diving mask for the scene is complete genius. I agree about super glossy finishes but it totally works here. I LOVE this! You are seriously, seriously talented!

Another Fantastic design. It’s something every diver would love to have and will be a big hit with the husband of your wife’s friend. You’ll have to let us know his reaction.

As we say down here in Southeast Texas, “I ain’t never seen nothin like this afore.” This is absolutely mind boggling. It’s hard to imagine an imagination like yours, to even think up a design like this. I won’t even think about the execution. As Dennis and Laura said, I would be tempted to burn LumberJocks down if you didn’t make Top Three.
My hat’s off to you, sir!
Have a good’un
