The kangaroo paw is the floral emblem of the state of Western Australia. It is an unusual plant with bright red stalks and green flowers.

But not in this intarsia where I have used natural timber colours. Green coloured wood I don't know about.

Layered construction simplifies the project and gives it a nice 3D feel.

Glue the flowers and stalk on top of a completed background and the honeyeater on top of the stalk.

How to make the backing up from veneer and then glue the bird and branch on top is explained on the plan.
