    Blue herons are a favorite of mine. I love watching their majestic and graceful movements as they fly. It's already a winner in my eyes. I'm sure you will do this design justice!

            That difference is really amazing! What was really impressive is really, really impressive. Will it change much with a second coat?

            Thanks for sharing.

                          Wow! - this a stunning piece!

                          In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak.

                            Hello! Glad you liked the heron. I bought the pattern directly from the designer, Bruce Worthington. http://intarsia.hostcentric.com/home/homepage/

                            The project is 18" x 24" and I used spalted maple for the water, blue pine and weathered maple for the bird, poplar for reeds. It was a challenge to cut and shape, but I am happy how he turned out.

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
