            I think the third photo is Lucky's display....The raccoon looks very familiar.
            If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                Indeed it is the ratcoon neal. I have been trying to get my pictures posted on here to show you, but for now I'll just tell ya. That ratcoon looked even better with a ribbon hanging on it in branson! Yup, it was good enough to recieve a second place amongst all that stuff, and Thank you for designing such a fun, fabulous piece! It is now sitting at our county fair, and will be judged tomarrow. I expect to be seeing blue hanging on it there, as the competition is nowhere near the quantity or quality as at a scrollsaw contest. I'm pretty excited about that! I do have 8 or so things entered at the county fair, and will be spending heaps of time there all week, between my own stuff, and the 4H kids, but i'll check in here often too. Hopefully, I can supply a few pictures soon! dale

                  Peculiar Greetings,
                  Trout, sorry but I have no idea what the white wood is, perhaps someone else might know.
                  Pat, thanks for the info, I don't know Jeff well enough to identify him from that angle! Your patterns shipped Saturday.
                  To the rest of the group who had comments, thanks, glad to hear you appreciated the photo's

                    Hey Trout,

                    The white wood could be Ash or Holly.

                    Those are two essences of wood that are used for white in Intarsia, to the best of my kowledge.

                    Regards,
                    Marcel

                      I would guess its maple. I have some extremely white maple , and it is a great intarsia wood (sands easily). Holly is a super white wood, but pretty hard to find much with any real size to it. Dale

                        trout, I don't really know,
                        for real, but how about wood, in white (as aspen). just a guess, your friend Evie

                          I wouldn't be surprised to find it was basswood. Nor would I be surprised to find that a white gel stain had been used over the top to emphasise it and prolong the 'whiteness'. All woods darken with age (I believe exposure to UV light has something to do with this), but gel stains can do a lot to inhibit the darkening process.

                              Shhhh.... it's a secret, Evie. If we tip-toe quietly away from the topic, perhaps nobody will notice.
