This is a Judy Gale Roberts pattern that I made for my grandaughter for Christmas. I will be taking this one and some others to Judy’s open house next weekend in Tennessee. If your close you should come by, it sounds like an intarsia artists dream. This piece is made from walnut, poplar, canary wood, blood wood, wenge, lace wood, ebony, teak, mohogany, cherry and yellow heart. The only changes I made form the original pattern was the feet and eyes. I used 2 inch lace wood for the feet to give them a little more depth. The pattern called to make the eyes out of one piece, then wood burn and paint. I chose to make the eyes out of different woods. It was a challenge due they fact some of the pieces were very small. Hope yall like it and suggestions are always welcome.
