Wood Fish

This is a quick summer decoration for the window sill or for a bathroom. A fish is simply drawn and easy to saw out. It is also a good way to use up wood scraps if you have any. The fish will look more rustical and antique if left rough. Displayed in a group of 3 fish at 3 various heights looks very decorative as well.
