This was just a fun one to do and I have no idea of what I will do with it. Sometimes I just see a picture and because of the colors, depth, and subject I just want to make a pattern and make it. I did put a lot of depth into this one because almost every piece has some kind of spacer in it besides the background. The letters were a challenge because of the contours in the wood. I ended up putting the Cortez for the letters into the bottom three pieces of poplar before cutting them and then cut and shaped them. For those of you that are not into fish tanks or fish there is actually a fish named the clownfish. Hopefully it does not look like this one or I will never go into the ocean again.
It was made with red heart, Osage, curly maple, purple heart, aspen, ebony, Cortez, cocobolo, black mesquite, yellow heart, wenge, walnut, and poplar. No stains were used to achieve the colors. I usually don’t care for a gloss finish but I did this one in it because I thought because it being a fish it looked better in gloss.
