    I had decided to put the bird in an intarsia , as I did with my Blue Heron.
    So the woods used, are Bubinga for the sky and sun, amaranth for the water, ebony for the rock, mahogany for the ground and cherry for the frame.

    As for some of you , the challenge for me , is that I have to do everything, I have no plan , for the first time!
    So I have to set the frame to fit the Puffin size and for what I want to add around it!
    So try this, that , this again, hummmm not quite , let’s see..... hummm, try something else..... etc. For the first time , this Intarsia will be mine , a creation. I am not use with that, I call myself a “copycat” or copying machine ! But It is fun !

    Our friend Puffin will be coming out of the water, with a beautiful sunset as back ground, as in that skeech

          it is coming very nicely Noel, lovely use of the colored woods.

              Well , knowing that my Puffin will have less light from it's back, I tried differents things , and the best was to put some Al. paper to it's back.

              P.S. Puffin appearance :
              If you remark the bird , It is a special one with his front black strip....due to planeur fault during handling ..... but Puffin is very happy because he is different now from his friend!

                Finally on a beautiful sunset, my Puffin is coming out of the water, looking at his friend , the smiling rock monster, part of some others rock'friends in the water and beach, that the “nature” had create over the years !
                The frame is 15" X 12" and the finish of all woods is with Osmo oil.

                Very happy with my first creation ! I will surely try another one, lot of research , steps and interrogations, but I like very much intarsia.

                      We used to hunt and eat them when I was growing up. Protected now. They were tasty little guys though.
