I am naming this box in honor of my angelfish who just spawned again. I haven’t been able to get any to make it yet, but I get closer with every spawning.
The Lacewood kind of reminds me of scales. I started to do more with the box. I wondered what the Lacewood would look like sculpted, but in the end I decided less was more for this one. Maybe I will carve on some in the future, but for this one I just added a touch of curly maple to help highlight the beautiful “scales” in the wood.
Lacewood is pretty easy to work with but watch out for splinters. I barely got the blood out of the maple from an especially nasty one. I think the result was worth every drop.
The last picture is of my Angel pair and their new eggs.
Thanks for letting me share, I hope you enjoy.
