I personally hand carved it to become a shallow wooden bowl just using knives and sanded to a smooth finish before having several coats of natural vegetable gums to give it a durable and shiny finish.

In keeping with my leaning to marine creatures that breath air there is also the turtle. So I whittled some turtles from wood. This differs from carving wood in that I use a pocket knife, not chisels.

Turtles are a ubiquitous sea creature found in tropical and subtropical waters. Perhaps it is their journey from the sandy nests on beaches as small, cute creatures. So my first effort was to mimic one of these hatchlings.

So far I have used smaller scraps of timber to create my small fish. Oddly, I have found them to be rather more involved than they seem Turtle hatchling from timber from local park. Approx 5cm long.
