Another Christmas present to check off the to-do list! This one is for my mom. Backer is 1/8” bb plywood stained with a red color (name of stain escapes me at the moment). Fish is cut from 1/4” poplar. Applied 4 coats of wipe on poly, then added 5 cup hooks to the bottom. The lower piece of plywood is another 1/8” piece added so the hooks had something to screw into.

Thanks for looking!

EDIT: Pattern is from Dirk Boelman at The Art Factory

Nice cutting job. Great piece.

Oops…I added the link to Dirk Boelman’s site. He is the pattern designer…he has quite a few excellent patterns for sale.

I have cut a fish like that before that Patrick Speilman designed.
That is a tough one.
Very delicate.
Nice job.

Mom will surely be proud of this one. The intricacy of its pattern is overwhelmingly pretty.
