A Mermaid that I made for my wife. I forgot what type of wood it was but the color is natural. The piece I used had all sorts of cracks making the wood not really usable for much else so I ended up inlaying copper into the cracks. The tail is actual a second piece that I added at an angle to make it 3D ish. Added a simple base and some conch shells that we had found on the beach. She loved it.

Looks like Mahogany, color is right and I’ve had boards with similar cracks.
as for the mermaid nice job. I like the conch base

Not just a wood project.

Very artistic.

I like using the wood instead of throwing it and I like using the shells instaed of them moving constantly around the house too.
