This biplane is a 5th birthday gift for my daughter. The dark Purpleheart body plays nicely off of the Yellowheart wings and propeller. The butterfly inlay is made with Mahogany, Birch & Ebony and, with the color scheme, helps add a very feminine feel to an otherwise very boy-oriented toy.

The engine and landing gear are Mahogany to match the wings of the butterfly. The entire toy is finished with 4 coats of tung oil. I (finally) get to give it to her in 2 more days and can’t wait! Thanks for viewing :)
