|Fish Silhouette Fused Glass Sliding Top for Wooden Box|
A Redfish, or Red Drum, silhouette in white Bullseye Glass is fused to a blue streaky background to form a sliding cover for my wooden box. This fish silhouette started as a sketch of an original drawing taken from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission webpage but really, inspiration for the idea of a fish silhouette came from a sticker I saw on a Yeti cooler.

I just received my new Taurus Ring Saw and can't wait to try it. After watching the very dramatic video that came with the Taurus Ring Saw, I followed the instructions and stuck my tracing of the sketch directly to the white glass using rubber cement. After waiting a few minutes for the glue to dry, I flipped the power switch and started cutting.

I was very worried about snapping the blade, so I tried to let the saw do all the work and it was amazing! The intricate dorsal fin shape and the inside circle were all so easy! I have no idea how I ever lived without it. Now just a little clean up with the grinder and the fish is ready to be tack fused to the already pre-fired base. Yeah.
