« Part 8: Hummingbird Day 8 Part 9 of Intarsia series Part 10: Hummingbird Day 10/ Completed »

My Wenge finally arrived yesterday, and I went straight to work! It’s frustrating looking at your project all weekend but not being able to progress on it. So now I’m happy again. I was able to get the beak together which was my major hold up because it is critical that the bird fits correctly before I can finish the frame.

I did take the liberty during the down time to take part of the Lilly apart and reshape some of it, I simply wasn’t totally satisfied with my shaping of it.

Here are yesterdays pictures. The wing is still a work in progress and I am doing shaping on that today, hopefully I will be close to finishing this project this week end.

Hey Bob, You’re doing a fantastic job. No one will ever believe you think of yourself as a novice at making Intarsias.
I’ve seen ones, made by people with years of experience, that haven’t looked this good.

The extra time you spent on the Lilly has really paid off.
