This is a set of band saw boxes of walnut and maple.
Finish is a 50/50 mix of Dark Walnut Watco and Marine varnish.
The base is meant to represent rippling water.

Thanks guys.
Can’t you just imagine this in a semi dark room. It’s likely to scare the heck out of my grandkids.

That is a beautiful piece. A great design to mount the pair on a base. My granddaughter might call those “mean eyes”.
