I did not keep track of my time on this project, but taking a guess considering the amount of time each day that I worked on it , it should be 75 to 100 hours on it. I used 9 different woods with the major one being Ash. It’s hard, but gives a nice finished look. Because of this project I find that satinwood and yellowhart are not the same wood, although the are the same color. Satinwood comes from Ceylon, I’m not real sure where the yellowhart comes from. I used both woods in this project and I would prefer the Satinwood. The wood thicknesses vary from 3/8 to 1”

Proceding from the largest amount to the smallest I used the following woods: 1.Ash 2.Yellowhart 3.Satinwood
4.western cedar 5.Paduuk 6. Cherry 7. White pine 8. Mesquite 9.Walnut

I do allot of Byzantine Iconography myself so not really into curving, but I like this piece very much and I love the fact he is holding an L square.
Very nice!

That is an outstanding work of craftsmanship! I absolutely love it. The wood compliments itself in a special way. Loved the idea as well.

The Joseph project is about 22” tall. Thinking ahead to another project was wondering if any of you have made a Westie dog from Kathy Wise pattern? If you have , would like to see it posted. Because the dog is pretty much all white, I’d like to know the wood used.
