My friend gave me the White Cedar; his wife saw what I was doing and said she wanted a salmon for him; I gave it to him on 21 July as a gift in return for the cedar, burls and wooden bird parts he didn't want anymore; 27x11x2 inches.
This is the first Ling Cod by me and the purchased third of the fish commissioned; I decided to do a cod because I liked their fins and offered it to the buyer in place of a snapper if he liked; he did for another $300. The three are to be hung as a group on a wall.
I had a commission to build three red snappers after my first one was made; the grain and lines were of great interest to the buyer: white cedar, hematite and abalone; I still have this one; he took two others and a ling cod.
A friend gave me a nicely shaped walnut burl for the breast of this bird; head is pine and feet are alder; eye is abalone; 9"high and wide, 13"long. Notice booby feet have the back toe coming forward to act as a 4th front toe.
White cedar, eyes of hematite and abalone; 17"long, 9"high, 2 1/2" depth; My friend had some white cedar he didn't want and it makes superb, striped fish for the wall.
White cedar, yellow cedar feet and abalone eyes; 22"high by 10"w, 13" in depth; received one of those requests for money that had a note pad with a blue footed
