Long story shortened.
A friend had asked me to make a fly tying table for him. Before it was made he passed on. He only left a son who did not fish so his son gave all the fishing gear to my daughter, who loves to fish. In his memory I made her his fly tying table.
The original plan called for 4 boards for the drawers so the grain would run through. Then another friend thought he had a board wide enough for the whole top.
Problem was, where the little fish is was a big knot. I made a template in the shape of a fish and routed out the knot. Then, using the same template I routed out the Dutchman to fill the space. We then noticed that the board had grain in the shape of a fish so I routed that out freehand and filled it with blackened epoxy.
Stained the outside with turquoise. Found a lady on the net who made drawer pulls in the shape of fish and those are on the left side drawers
-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
