The red-tailed Hawk in Intarsia is finished by hubby and ready for his owner who will be picking him up. He measures 10 1/2 inches wide and 11" tall. He is quite beautiful and we were both pleased with the way he came out. The top wing was cut out separately from the body parts and glued on afterward. All 64 pcs. were stained and/or painted first before gluing them together on a base. Then the details of the feathers, head and eye were painted again.
He does not have a glaring shine like that which is reflecting from my camera flash, but does have 2 coats of varnish to protect him.
This was a long project but hubby enjoyed making it for our friend and cannot wait for him to see it in person!
I hope you enjoyed seeing the hawk's development and if you are a woodworker that this has peaked your interest about working in Intarsia.
Thank you so much for visiting and please leave a comment for us as we read every one. Come back soon.
