This is an intarsia design by Kathy Wise that uses American Black Walnut, Wenge, Maple, Yellow Heart, Red Heart, Aspen, tiger wood and Ebony. My wife’s favorite piece and she won’t let me sell it.

Looked at ALL your pieces. Outstanding caftsmanship! Choice of woods, grain direction and color make the piece! Even if someone else provided a pattern , you produced the work.

I’m with your wife on this one.. lol!

Did you hand carve or use a router on the tail?

Thanks all for your kind comments. DocSavage45…The tail was carved with a rotary disc tool to get the grooves.
