This is actually a very old project. Predates pretty much everything else I’ve done.

Carved out of cedar using dremmel tool and a variety of bits and drum sanders.

Did this one and a few others. Made me REALLY appreciate the amount of detail and skill that goes into the fish carvings people complete.

It was fun and VERY time consuming. Probably would have been better/easier with a foredom or a flex tool attachment for the dremmel.

Very nice job, but it looks nothing like the plan it’s on.
