Just finished this Hummingbird.
Used nine different woods, Wenge, Maple, Blood wood, Walnut, Aspen,Poplar, Purple Heart, Bubinga and Red Cedar.
It’s finished with five coats of Deft Semi Gloss Lacquer and I inlayed a penny on the back for dating the year made.
The pattern is by Judy Gale Roberts
All comments are welcomed!
Thanks for looking.

Update…..Whoops, It is actually 11 woods, I simply missed the Lacewood (Leopard wood) and the backer is kinda a funny story. I was in HD one day checking out the cutoff bin and came a cross a piece of 1/4” oak ply that was in it. I had no use for it at the time but for .50 cents I couldn’t pass it up. I was using that piece just to move the bird from place to place, the back side of the oak ply was not oak, not sure what it is, but I set the bird on it to take it for another coat of finish and it just looked really good on it. So the backer is the bad side of a piece of 50 cent oak ply from HD.
