ALTERNATIVES TO STANDARD TAXIDERMY

 

Sailfish $185

Sailfish — gift for a father’s birthday…..$217  (31″x12)

 

Get an exquisite carving of a specific fish.  Doc’s Island creates wooden fish carvings and nautical decor custom renderings to your specifications, photos, or a selection from the “Salt Water Fish” page of this site.

Florida Marlin $150

Florida Marlin — ordered as a souvenir for a Cabo fishing trip $231 (33″x12″)

Your special catch can be preserved for a lifetime (and with the satisfaction of knowing the catch was released to swim again) in a distinctive, custom rendering, always reminding you of that day.  Let your imagination be your guide; all that is required is a good photograph or image of the entire animal and approximate dimensions.  In a short time you can be hanging a wooden fish carving keepsake of your adventure for much, much less than the cost of a traditional mount.

Custom work requests yield satisfying results; once provided with an image, the artist will discuss the proposed piece with the customer first, to insure no surprises.  Pricing is most reasonable and consideration is given for orders of multiple pieces as well as size and complexity.

RED OCTOPUS

RED OCTOPUS–ordered as a gift for Mother’s Day $90 (approx 30″ across)

An Alternative to Taxidermy

Rather than having your special catch stuffed and mounted, release it or fillet it and get a unique, creative, life-like wooden fish carving from Doc’s Island.  These wooden carvings are a creative alternative to standard taxidermy, significantly less expensive, and can be created from any good image.
