Have you seen BLee's stump carved by chainsaw? It's a great repro of his Skater and it's near the lake behind his place.

Yes.

I wanted to see if people like this idea so I can make a decison whether to keep offering it or not in my line-up.

I am not sure how many people are aware of what they are. They have been available on my site for some time now but only had 1 inquiry about them...

So I had one made for myself to see just what they are like and I find it cool to be able to put just about anywhere...

So you take a picture of my boat and then put it on that stand? Seems kind of cool I guess it all depends on the almighty dollar.

The statuette is made from an image I shot.
Images are printed on regular photo paper and mounted on 1/8" thick white acrylic. A trained artist traces the subject(s) and creates a cut file that is used to laser cut the subject(s).

1/4" thick white acrylic base. Ships flat, easy to assemble.

Sizes available:

5 x 7 $24.99

8 x 10 $ 32.99
