  • Mother's Day Fishy

    Mother's Day is creeping around the corner real soon, so I figure I best be prepared early. I whipped up this little Boxfish with some coral...just 32 pieces, a 6 hr project. My mother lives in canada, so I always have to be 2 extra weeks ahead of the game for shipping.
    The box fish is just lacewood, with some canary wood with bloodwood coral, and the other little fish is satinwood with paela. It's not very big or complicated, but it's the thought that counts!

    That is a really nice piece! You did a beautiful job on it too. I never get gifts done on time. My mom is in Canada too, luckily my mother in law is coming down in a few weeks for a visit. I'm sure she'll pick out something she HAS to have!

      Wow I'm glad you posted that, Jeff.

      Other than the fact that it's beautiful work as always - you just reminded me that I have to get something to my mum for Mother's Day - which is much earlier in the UK - 18th March this year! Yikes!

          Good job Jeff. I marvel at folks who can "whip" something up.

            "6 HOURS!" that would probably take me 6 days/weeks. It's a wonderful gift for your Mother Jeff, well done.

              Wonderful is a good adjective for this one. It'll be treasured ... and not 'cause it's your ma. LOL I know I'd love to see it on my wall.

                Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

                The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
