Butterfly Fish Intarsia (Heniochus)

4/4 Walnut, Poplar, Oak, Yellowheart and Ebony Eye with BLO finish

Made both at same time… the oak fins and eyes were the only pieces I had to cut twice. So technically one of them has an improper color scheme but oh well. I couldn’t flush him down the toilet (or put him in the scrap pile).

They are about 8” tall.

Having just started doing scroll-saw work I really like this piece. Great work.
