Another Judy Gale Roberts pattern and had a opportunity to visit her gallery last week, one word Awsome. Just finished this one tonight and I had a real hard time with the wood color. I avoid doing any staining on any of my projects and use just the wood colors. I had a very hard time finding the right wood for this one that would go from a light to dark in the same piece of wood. If anyone has a suggestions for a exotic wood source in the NC/Tenn/SC region, I will thank you in advance. This piece is made of teak, curly maple, ebony, poplar, walnut, cherry, canary wood, red oak, and again no stain. First one I have gotten to oportunity to sell for $$$ as a special order!!

Thanks for looking,

Kory

This is beautiful work. Nice job on the wood selection and the shaping of the elephants wrinkles.

Have you thought of entering this in the fluidity contest? I sure see movement in that elephant! Beautiful color matching. Masterful intarsia work.

Thats really cool, you do wonderful work.

I just met Judy this past weekend at the World Scroll Saw Expo in Wilmington Ohio she had some awesome work and she was a really nice lady. Did you take any of her classes? I have heard they are really good.

I will be posting on my blog all to great pictures I took so feel free to go take a look.
