I found a pattern for a Macaw and made This piece it is just over 2 feet tall and about 9” wide. I used Yellow heart, Ipe, Oak and Maple the Blue is a wood stain put on thick for the color. I thick I’ll make the Red one next. The picture does not do it much justice it does have a three D look on the wall.
Thanks Dennis

Great work Dennis. The blue color looks good. I will have to see it in person when I go to Reno for wood.
