 This is a flower that I did for myself. It uses 26 different pieces of wood to make up the design. The red is:Nicaraguan redheart, paudouk, )I can't remember the third shade). The white stamen is holly and the stem is walnut. The stem is proud of the background and sand sculpted to give the appearance of depth. The background is figured elm.

This is the end of the plane till where the flower lives. The dovetails are hand cut of course. The flat piece above the planes will eventually hold the longer metal planes. The till is finished with shelac. I prefer the shelac that I make from flakes.

Hope that you enjoy.
