I desided that I didnt want to make another animal, or a normal Intarsia peice. I wanted to make something that I could use my Artist side on and something “I” would really like. I found this picture online and really thought it was cool. I used inkscape to make the pattern and changed it up some. I had a really good time making this peice and used 5 different types of wood. I normally never use stain but I used a little on this peice just to darken the basswood used for the eyes and nose. I thought it didnt look very good all the same color. I hope you enjoy this peice as much as I enjoyed making it, thanks

Very cool Michael, your last two pieces that you made the pattern are both very creative. I am impressed, keep up the good work.

That is fantastic work! I LOVE the macabre aspect – the raven/crow taking the last vestige of what made the skull a clown/jester.

Very cool piece!

The work is really tight as well! I think you made a great choice darkening the nose and eyes – if you had it all to do again you may have wanted to even use walnut…........
