That looks great!!! Makes me wonder does the charred effect work with all woods or are there certain woods that works better with than others?

Thanks all above for the comments. Another enjoyable project. I’m only learning about charring wood, I woud say YES all wood could be but it woud be a good idea to try it on a spare piece first, if the heat can be turned low not much damage is done but I have set a piece of Poplar on fire with high heat. That’s the fun on learning. Enjoy.

Boy, this makes me feel very much humbled in what I do in comparison. In all fairness I don’t consider myself a CARVER. I like to use different color woods to create intarsia. The best thing about it is that the longer you stay at it the more improved you get.

Thanks for that David, You must put some of your projects on site, always wanting to try intarsia but wouldn’t have the patients. You right about improving, did you have a look at the Leopard I put on after the Tiger, I reckon it has improved and I redid this Tiger’s eyes. Thanks again.
