Got the fall 2015 issue #60 of Scrollsaw Woodworking to build another project but found the patterns for Lazy Raccoon and had to give it a try.
I’ve never done a intarsia before so just thought I’d give it a try.
Have got it pretty well all cut out and shaped but will do some fine tuning tomorrow but just wanted to show my progress.

I found a walnut cutting board while scrounging the other day, was chopped up really bad but nothing my planer couldn’t fix.
I started out with 3/4” walnut but when I started cutting out the body I found out really quick that my cheap old HF scroll saw just wasn’t going to cut it so sliced it on the table saw to 1/2” and it worked a lot better.

So here it is with one coat of Minwax Danish oil hand rub finish.
Still need to come up with a border, thinking some intarsia leaves but we’ll see.

Damn he looks comfortable!

I think with the “tune up” it will be just GREAT!

I like it as is already.

I added a ton a leaves, he needed some thing to lay in.
38 to be exact.
I really feel like it needs more but want to get on to other projects.

I wonder where I got the feel for my leaf shapes???
