**Aaaah My cockatoo, The pattern came from a stained glass pattern book I had once. No credits here however as I know longer have the book. Stain glass patterns are a different place to look for patterns and I have found quite a few interesting ones however it is more like doing segmentation with these patterns instead of intarsia. I love this one though because it is made out of curly maple (not the cheapest wood around) given to me by a neighbor of my fathers. And the brighter yellow actually came from a lemon tree from my Daddy’s backyard. When my husband trimmed it down we both could not believe how beautiful the wood was/is. Sooooo anyone out there got a lemon tree that needs trimming…….......? The beak is black walnut and that is a fake plastic mirror as I have not learned how to cut glass/mirror yet but definitely on the top of my want to learn list! ANYONE???
