I used Walnut for the dark stripes, Honey Locust for the light stripes, and Box Elder for the White Stripes. Ebony for the lips, Aromatic Red Cedar for the Tongue, and Fruitwood for the inside of the mouth with Yellowheart for the eyes.

I am doing the Cedar Valley Woodcarvers Show at the Best Western Longbranch Feb 1st and 2nd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Stopped by and see me if you are close.

Wow, that is really nice. I like how the “light” stripes themselves are striped :)
If you don’t mind my asking, because I am still new to this, what did you use for finish?

Oh my, this brought tears to my eyes! This is the very first intarsia pattern that my late husband tackled when he had to quit his job due to his health. You did an amazing job! Thank you for sharing this.
