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.

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.
