I got this plan out of Wood Magazine. I gave 1 to my step dad and he likes it. I am going to use tung oil to finish.

Cool! I guess since it’s fish you can only use this for white wine? :-)

Rustic,

Great fish.

Could you tell me how long it is and what the distance is from the hole to the tail?

Thanks,
Ganders

Very cool, I’m going to try to make one of thees without the pattern and will look this up again if it doesn’t work out the first go around.

I found the same pattern in the magazine and made a practice one out of pine. For the second one, I made it out of leopard wood. The pattern of the leopard wood looks like fish scales. Thanks to my wife for finding that at the local hardwoods store.
