This is my first ever intarsia project, made by cutting different species of wood into fitting shapes to make a larger picture. No stain is used – only the natural colors of the wood. It was constructed from red oak, poplar, yellow pine, and unknown reclaimed wood.
It is named “The Fish Panhandler” because it’s based on a brown pelican I photographed at The Docks at Crayton Cove, Naples, Florida hanging around the fish cleaning station waiting for fishermen to toss him their leftovers.
