  • Intarsia,- Boozing Kangaroo,- typical Aussie !!!

    This is not my design. Actually came from the Australian Book titled, " Intarsia Down Under," by Steve Bundred.
    Design has be modified by making it about 50% larger, and adding some more beer bottles around the deck chair legs, plus the heading, " G'day mate, 'ave a drink. "
    I also added the nicely-grained plywood backing board to the original design.
    the froth on the glass is done using Artist's Acrylic, " White, " and the nose & eye painted in Artist's Acrylic, " Black, " as I could not find suitable dark enough timber in my local region. The kanga's body is cut from recycled oregon, and the chair seat from a piece of Meranti, with the chair legs in Radiata pine, & the Beer bottles in Queensland Kauri pine. Finish is 3 coats of Gloss Polyurathane.

    'ave a happy day,
