This is my 3rd project. I desided to skip the other beginner patterns and go for a challange. This pattern has 173 pieces, it took 95 hours to complete. Thanks for any comments or questions.

Great looking piece Michael, I’d never guess it was only your 3rd project if you hadn’t said so.

Looks terrific, my wife said that if we had a “safari” theme in our house she would buy that. Very cute model! Looks like she won’t let you sell it?

Not bad for your 3rd try. Keep it up, it gets easier and more addictive.

That is absolutely awesome.
After the first two works, it is a major step forward.
If you do you continue this pace, it is interesting what will be the sixth of your work.
Thanks for sharing with us and welcome to Lumberjocks community.

Very well done. I have had the twitch to try intarsia for over 2 years but just can’t get the honey-do list down enough to have the opportunity. 3rd attempt…..hmmmmmm. I am inspired again. Awesome.
