Thanks Gene--Been working on this piece off and on since October. This is a design as I go project which means lots of cuts and re-cuts to get the depth right. My intention  was to use as many natural colored woods and adding as much detail as possible. Had no idea how many pieces it would have but figured at least 300 would be close.

Thanks John- each piece starts off with the subject photo, hand drawn onto paper , reduced to the proper size on the printer, traced onto sticky back label paper, applied to the wood blank, cut on the scroll saw, sanded, detailed with engraving bits and inlayed into the background wood. Some pieces take around 10 or so minutes  just to get to the inlay stage which is another whole process. Fun Stuff!!
