1/8″ Brass Stock
Thin hardwood stock (any of your choosing)
Burl or any other base (could be flat)
Fine Sand Paper
Use the belt sander to define the shape and smooth out the edges. Use the fine sandpaper for finishing until your shape is smooth to touch.
Drill an 1/8″ hole on the bottom of your fish and the top of your base. This is where the brass stock will be placed. If the stock is too long, simply cut to the length you prefer using a hack saw.
*If power tools make you a bit nervous, don’t be afraid to ask for assistance!
