    Almost finished with this one. Not an original pattern, just playing around with colors again. It's all one piece of poplar and stained with a combination of Golden Oak and Artist Oils.

        Nice trout...reminds me of when I was fishing with my father as a kid. I miss those days..My dad was a horrible fisherman, but entertaining to watch.

          Wow Neal, that is a beautiful fish. If I ever got so I could do something that good, I would be really proud of myself. I'm sure I'll destroy a lot of wood before that ever happens!!!

            Thanks for the comments guys. I need to take a day and go fishing to dump some stress!! Bob...you can do it, all you have to do is start. Once you get rollin' things just sort of fall into place. I've made my share of designer firewood over the years but every mistake was a learning experience.

                Neal, I am planning to go to Stonecoal and Stonewall in march if you can hang in there that long. You are welcome to jump in the boat. Steve

                  Super job. Every time I see one of these pieces I get the urge to try it myself!

                    Neal, that fish looks so lifelike! You've got such patience to be able to paint the spots so carefully - I'd get bored and end up with loads of splodges . I really love the way you've embellished the fins with carved lines. Did you do those manually? You must have a very steady hand if so.

                      I love it Neal - you did a super job on the colors.----- but-- I have gotten some artist oils for Christmas and I don't have the touch you do with them- what do you do to the wood to make it absorb like that - I tend to want to hurry to get them glued and that sometimes means touching wet oils --urgh..

                      My oils don't want to stick like yours do -- how did you do it.. Where did you get that pattern?

                          Neal, that is a super piece of work, and like Gill i'd like to know how you did it especially the lines on the tail.

                              Wonderful job on the fish!! You've done a great job in the coloring as well. It looks so natural - I am truly impressed!

                                Cute Pattern.
                                I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                                This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                                No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
