Default Inspired by Nubbin

G'day all,
Last Xmas present for posting completed.

This was inspired by an earlier post by Nubbin, thanks mate.

Stack cut 2, one for the prezzie and another to flog at the markets next year.

Backing 3mm merantie ply and the fish. Face 6mm Aloes / Ramin ply.

3 coats of 30% gloss lacquer, 1 back board stained walnut the other jarrah.

I was going to include a scrolled Rod and Tackle box, but after taking my time and very carefully scrolling the rod (the line) there was a bloody void going right through the centre

Needless to say it went into the bin followed by a few choice words.

As always, comments, critiques, welcome.

That one got some grins from me, although I would have to leave my hat there all the time.

Hey John,
Beautiful job on those, do you use a regular paint sprayer and compressor for your finishing? Your finished projects always look like you know what your doing.
Just kidding, you do great work.

Nice work, John. I think I like it better the way you did it Still can't believe that I inspired you though but glad you liked mine well enough to do one similar. Merry Christmas to you and the family.

Thank you all,
Tom, I have a 51 litre compressor. One hose comes directly from the compressor at about 100psi for nail, pin, and staple guns. I then have a junction with another hose going to a regulator set at about 35 -40 psi for spraying. I have a HVLP gun which I use for spraying all my lacquers and 3 touch-up guns which I use for paints.
I think the secret is in the prep. I usually sand starting with 120 - 180 - 220 and sometimes 280g. Then I cut back with 320g between coats.

Knowing what you're doing(or at least thinking that you do) helps as well.

G'day Andy,
I liked your rig cut out on your plaque, but didn't have the time to investigate or find simular, so just went with the fish which is part of a larger pattern I got from Berry Basket some time ago.

If it makes me a million I wont forget you
