Last week my family was in Hawaii. My girlfriend stumbled upon a carved bowl of a turtle that she could keep her jewelry in. She told me that she would rather me make one for her, so for christmas I surprised her with a small little turtle. It is made from 2inch mahogany and hand gouged. It seemed to be simple but took a while to gouge and sand and finish. Overall I am pretty happy with it and so is she. Some minor flaws, but nothing too major.
