    Default Not Taxidermy.............

    But very close and probably better as I'm sure it'll last longer than real taxidermy. Let me start with a few years ago when one of the hurricanes swept by I lost a few cedar trees on my property. So I decided to cut them in 10-12 foot lengths & had the hopes of making something from them. Well, since I'm not a woodworker they sat around for a while. I got tired of mowing around the pile of logs & figured I probably wasn't going to do anything with them. I called a friend of mine who does craft things from wood & such to offer the logs to him. He came by & picked what he wanted and said one day he'd make something for me out of the wood. A year or 2 passed and never heard anything about the logs so I figured he just never got to use them like me. I got a call from this guy last week & he said "hey, I got something for you & I'll drop it off at your house in the next few days".

    I came home from work yesterday & found this sitting on my porch table.

    Very detailed work & very cool to be made from a piece of wood from a tree on my property.
    The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you?"

    Beautiful. I’d much rather have that than a mount. Lots of hours in that for sure.

    Very nice indeed. It's funny that you showed that... because I am in the process of making some of that stuff myself.
    The problem is: There's so much I want to do that I am having a hard time deciding on just what to do first.
    I guess I'm kinda' like "vapor locked". Thanks for sharing a nice piece of crappie art.
