Now what should we call a design that is a fish with a lot of spots? I know! Why don't we call it the Spotty Fish. And who said marketing was difficult?
Just 34 pieces makes for an easy project. Apart from the 83 spots that is. I can't believe it has that many. You're right, this one doesn't. Only 61 on this old fellow. I left some out.
But the pattern has 83. Honest.
The instructions have a couple of ""no lathe"" ways of making all those round spots. Using plug cutters for instance. Or just a drill and a sander. Full details on the pattern.
The full size plan will step you through the construction process. East peasy!
