Save The River is proud to offer this magnificent smallmouth bass carved by 1000 Islands master carver Glenn Sweet of Thousand Islands Decoy Company. The bass itself is carved from local butternut, the driftwood stand was picked up on Cedar Island, and the luster on the base of local oak comes from three coats of tung oil. Glenn mixed the stain for the bass himself, and coated the finished product with a slightly tinted urethane. Glenn began carving at age 10 under the tutelage of his grandfather, Ed Sweet, who was a lightkeeper at several 1000 Islands region lighthouses including Crossover Island and Tibbetts Point. Glenn Sweet’s carvings are highly valued by collectors and he is excited to be able to support Save The River’s work to restore, preserve, and protect the St. Lawrence River through the donation of this beautiful carving.
