20″ Large mouth bass carving

This project was special… The customer asked me to make a bass fish replica of the one him and his buddy caught. What makes it special is that the carving is a memorial of his friend who passed away… It is a great honor to create an image that will remind him of all his sweet, joyful memories of all the good times they shared together.

fish sketch update

I started with an oak log and cut out a block for the fish and one for the support.



After the image is blocked out, the next step was sanding and details…



Then, I moved to the stand…

Finally, I combined them using a wooden dowel and lightly burned the surface to create a bass pattern.
