Yes I do make sawdust. This was started back in 2018 or 2019. Too long ago to remember. I am on a kick trying to complete some of the dozen or more projects that taking up space in my shop. I think this one project has 26 separate pieces. It is a small miracle that I found every piece I had cut originally. This is a Judy Gale Roberts design. The leaves and stem are poplar. The flower is yellow heart and maple. The hummingbird throat is flame box elder. The rest of him is made from western cedar, maple and walnut. The backer is maple plywood. Finish with Masters Gel Poly. The only paint/stain used is the little white dot on the eye. Thanks for looking.
