I’m guessing that the fish is a bass? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Yes, it was intended to be a bass but I did not have the courage to put that in the title incase people did not recognize it as a bass. lol. First try at a fish.

Looks good Mix of power tools and hand?

I have two fish carvings I need to finish at some point. Like so many of my projects they get started and then get to a point and sit for years.

Aha, now I get the whole football as a first turning thing. You’re already an accomplished artist and woodworker. This is a really stunning piece bro.
