I made this little guy out of Zebra, Bubinga, Walnut, and Lace woods. It fits in your hand even though it might appear larger.
I printed a picture I liked on adhesive backed paper and traced different areas of colors with a pen. Then cut them out and stuck them to some nice wood scraps. Followed that with a few hours at the band saw. Several hours of scraping, filing, and sanding and I was able to fit the pieces together. After getting this as tight as I could I glued it and hit it with my belt sander as most of my scraps were not the same thickness.
OK so it’s not a great fitting thing but I gave it a good try. I will take a few more pictures after I figure out what type of wood I will use to make a little plaque to hang it on. I do have some oak lying around!
I am sorry for the dark picture. I will take a few more soon.
