How did you get the idea for this Caduceus?

I sell boxes like these for $20 here in West Texas. I have sold a lot of boxes every year for the past six years. This caduceus is the most difficult inlay image that I have done. I no longer make boxes with a caduceus because they just do not sell well. Inlay of this may take as long as twenty minutes to cut. Lots of small pieces between the snakes and the staff. I just sell locally, within an hours drive of Lubbock.

It’s beautiful, Jim. How did you do the shadowing where some members go behind others ? Are the feathers in the wings also shaded ? I can’t really tell.

There is no shading. I do not even know how to do that. I think what you may be seeing are just necessary cuts to get to the inside pieces.
