This cougar holds a special place in my heart, mainly 1st of all I just fell in love with the pattern which came from Creative Woodworks & crafts. It seems as if most of the patterns for scrolled work asks for you to use baltic birch plywood and I had never used it before.I made the cougar but I wanted something different for the “frame.” She got put away and about a year later when I had since fallen in love with doing intarsia I found a way of making the original pattern with a little intarsia added. This is the outcome. I did however use paint for the back. This is all mainly made with pine and green poplar. Yes without a doubt she is one of my favorites!!!

Always learning new skills and then melding them together. A great combination.
