This is an Intarsia red eyes frog.

This is a custom design that i made from a picture that i take some years ago.

Like in all intarsia projects is necessary some patients.

Started drawing the desing using my own picture, it take a couple of hours.

Later of print a couple of layouts, started to cut the wood, using a scrollsaw, triying to following the desing, some of the pieces are really small, so i had to cut many times. Finally i sanded and sanded, and sanded again, to ink the wood.

And the result is that you can see.
Attach the picture that i used for the design and the final result

Very nice and great designing yourself.

I have made similar Intarsia and have used an actual tree branch and it gives a little more realism.

The POP of those vibrant colors drew me to open your posting, sure is eye catching, and would make a playful addition to anything. Nice work.
