Default Gekko

Gekko after first cuts.

Amazing how long it can take to prepare and cut even something this simple. Had to resaw (don't have a bandsaw so I have to do it the best I can on a table saw) two different woods to 3 different sizes). Then plane. Of course, it is all fun stuff. =)

I am not very good at shaping yet, and I don't have a any fancy sanders yet, but I have been reading up on the different options for intarsia sanding (and boy there seem to be a lot of them) I think I will have to get something to help with the shaping.

Is it just me, or is there a problem in the pattern? I cut it the way it said, but it appears to me as though the front left leg extends to the middle of the body, when it should stop at the side of the body and the body level should extend up to the head. The way I cut it... I don't think I will be able to blend this in naturally.

Nevermind the previous post... I should have just looked at the instructions on the pattern closer. =)

Gekko is shaping up.
