Crab and Turtle

Merry Christmas everyone.

A giant crab made from some sort of pine I milled a few weeks ago. Not sure of the timber type but it has a very wide reddish heart with little sapwood.

The turtle was carved from macrocarpa. Its my first one and the customer was very happy with iit - he bought both for 500 plus a heron for 250 and gave me a nice bottle of champagne

Cheers
Tony
