Red Fish Key Rack

Key Rack for Your Fishing Shack

I made these dudes to hold your keys while you go and try to catch the big one.  The piece measures around 14 inches long.  The nails used are from sometime in the 1800s.  How many ways can I use my favorite fish?

Happy Red Fish Strikes Again as a Pencil Box
I don't have a clue to why I enjoy making these fish into something, but damn they make me laugh out loud.  This guy is made from a poplar lintel from the Karges mansion that once occupied North Second Street.  He was cut out freehand with my bandsaw, sanded down, the pencil hole was drilled in with a forsner bit, painted red (currently my favorite color) and then buffed out to a warm red glow.  The red glow comment comes from Rudolph.

Monsters - Cheaper than Therapy

My monsters were the catalyst to create pieces that amuse me and put a smile on my face. 

If your looking for a great pick me up gift for someone who is feeling not so great, one of my monsters is close to the price of a disposable Hallmark greeting card.  These little buggers will make almost everyone smile.  For available Monsters, visit my Etsy store: Haddad Art.

Here are six of my monsters created in the spring of 2015.
