Red Fish Pencil Holder

Warm Red Glow Red Fish Pencil Box

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.
