Back on the scroll saw for some salt water fun.
The Octopus and frame are cherry, oak suckers and I think the backer board is Teak.
Used a Danish oil finish.
I think this will look good behind the Nautilus. lol

The Nautilus build blog is here.

I like that. The softness and depth of the shape coupled with the textured suckers is a pretty cool.

A scroll saw indeed!
Very cleverly done, at first I thought Octy suffered a few battle scars.

I bet the gold fish is nervous now.
