Well, I made this project long time ago. I found the pictures and I post it. Details… my scroll saw it´s a old craftsman. Not only work with wood because it does not get many classes here. There is no specialty shops. All you have is pine, walnut, cedar and banak sometimes. Like you see I combine wood with playwood and paint the wood. Thank god I have sold many pictures like this, unfortunately the work you have to do not let you do the work you love to do hehehe but I love the intarsia projects!I apologize for my bad english!!!See you!!!

One place where I see people go a little wrong… and the bigger the pieces the more important it is…
1) Dont under estimate the power of using thicker stock and/or spacers2) Combine with overlays3) Generally a piece like this would be thicker in the center and thinner toward the edges. However, that’s not always the rule… consider how something might me be a bit more unbalanced (like the frog in my projects)
Follow those rules and your pieces will be more 3 dimensional and appear much more difficult than they actually were to create. A piece like this I would bring out the nose and the brows, leaving the eyes set back a little. The main (hair) I would have carved some flowing lines. REMEMBER SANDING IS ALWAYS THE FUN PART HAHA
It looks like you have the basic skills mastered and just wanted to provide some constructive input to help everyone to do better in what I consider a fun hobby.

Thank you very much for taking the time to explain your advice Brian. I really appreciate it. Well, the work was made long time ago and I’ve learned some things. Do different levels makes a big difference in the final result. One example is the mirror of flowers on my projects. And yeah … Sanding is the fun part jejejejejejeThank you very much for your advice mi amigo!!! And keep sanding bro!!! jejejeje
