Mainly walnut and some stiff called satinwood, ebony eye. Tung oil finish.

I think some sea turtles are in my future along with lots of tropical fish to complete the bathroom decor.

Wow, this is amazing. I love the choice of woods. This is the first piece of intarsia that has made me wish I could do this! I look forward to the sea turtles!

Beautiful and very artistic. Your craftsmanship is extremely evident in the detail and precise execution. Is this your original artistic interpretation, either way it is just wonderful, a real eye catcher, great job, thanks for sharing
