The HOTTEST ORIGINAL graphics on the NET at Sparkletags.Com**Aaaah My cockatoo, The pattern came from a stained glass pattern book I had once. No credits here however as I know longer have the book. Stain glass patterns are a different place to look for patterns and I have found quite a few interesting ones however it is more like doing segmentation with these patterns instead of intarsia. I love this one though because it is made out of curly maple (not the cheapest wood around) given to me by a neighbor of my fathers. And the brighter yellow actually came from a lemon tree from my Daddy’s backyard. When my husband trimmed it down we both could not believe how beautiful the wood was/is. Sooooo anyone out there got a lemon tree that needs trimming…..........? The beak is black walnut and that is a fake plastic mirror as I have not learned how to cut glass/mirror yet but definitely on the top of my want to learn list! ANYONE???

Have now been through your work, all are just beautiful. Very nicely done, and an excellent choice of woods. Color in intarsia is everything….. You have the knack!

“A Tip of the Hat to you Allison” Looking farward to seeing more of your work in the future.

By the way…. Welcome to LJ’s

Very cool. Great to be able to use some of your lemon for more than the normal flavor.
