7 layer Crappie Fish

With my most popular selling item being a fish, I thought I’d create another one. I still find the hardest part making the fishing rod look like a fishing rod rather than a big stick. After the editing it 3 times, it was perfect.
This 7 layer Crappie Fish measures 8.8" high and 15" wide. (Still within actual size of a large Crappie Fish :smiley:

I made the one in the pictures with maple, mahogany, cherry and walnut 1/4" plywood and a little glue. Hanging bracket is of course included with the design.

Enjoy.

Lol. Thank you.

The wood grain slant was unintentional as I was trying to use minimal wood. It turned out with a different look and better than expected.

I dunno… “Crappie Fish” is a name that got us all talking about it and thinking about it :wink:
“Sunfish” or “Grouper” and we might have all been like, “nice fish” and moved on :wink:

I grew up just calling them “Crappie” (Craw-Pee) so when we add the “Fish” my brain translates it to the other pronunciation…

However people want to identify it, I just hope they don’t think of it as the “crappy” fish. Lol.

Guess I won’t be making a dung beetle. :grin:
