    This one is gonna be really sweet if it survives. Pics do not do it justice. Still needs some more work but I think it will be an awesome piece when done.

    Your looking at between $350 and $400 total depending on how much it costs to pack and ship. This one is actually going to Michigan. It was made for Cherry Corals. Todd wanted it very detailed. So that adds to the price. This guy is a beast too. It is only about 12-13" tall but it spreads out to almost 18". It will dry some and shrink in the process. It has 51 holes for plugs.


    These things take a long time to make. I actually just finished texturing it about 20 minutes ago. It looks awesome. Now I just have to make sure it dries evenly or it will crack. The center dries slower than the outside. The hard part is done. Now the waiting game takes place.
