Approx 20cm high, design from a posting by a member a long time ago for an on-line class in intarsia. Log is real driftwood, frog is cut from Radiata Pine, stained with food dyes then clear laquered. Eye is Ebony, Padauk and Tasmanina Cheesewood, nostril is Ebony. Granddaughter has a tree painted on her bedroom wall so this is a new branch. Went over real big. Bobbin sander was a huge help in shaping the belly and the neck.
Now another grandaughter wants one and her brother wants a Rhinoceros so I need to find some more grey wood.
