Nice one Jim. Is this your usual full thickness double bevel cut?
Very well done.

Thank you for the kind comments. I included the pine circle/spotlight in this project so that the walnut would show up well. Walnut and cedar do not contrast enough to suit me. I also changed the color of Mickey’s pants from red to yellow (bois d’arc) to match his shoes. The red is babinga the hands and eyes are basswood and the ears are walnut. The spotlight and the faces are pine.
