Probably should do a Nepenthes...
how much does one cost
Thanks again for the comments.
Some of my other hobbies I try to make time for are:
Photography, Hiking, Canoeing, Mountain Biking, Geocaching, Woodworking, Breeding Leopard Geckos, Tropical Fish, Carnivorous Plants, Bonsai, Orchids, Flying R/C Planes / Stunt Kites, Camping, Coins / Stamps, Computers, Fossil Hunting, Astronomy. Something I've wanted to do for several years but have not spent the money yet for is cross country skiing.
I'm sure I missed a few that I have not done in a while.
The landscape was done the same way I do all the others. Find a picture I like and print it out. Then I spray glue it to the wood and cut it out. Then I sand the pieces, rounding the edges, paint it and glue it back together.
Here is a picture of the next woodworking piece I'm making, in progress so you can see the template on the wood. This is not the same woodworking as the mickey. The mickey was what they call intarsia. The train is just scroll saw work. Everything that is black on the template will be cut away leaving the white.
To give you an idea of size, it is about 14" in diameter. So far I have 1 hr and 15 min. I've been timing myself to see how long it really takes. The owl on my woodworking page I believe has over 20 hours to complete.
I have not sold anything I've made. They have all been for myself or gifts. I would never get what they are worth because of the time involved. I figure I would want to get at least $10.00 an hour. It took 7 hours to make the mickey. Some take much longer.
It took just over 7 hours for the mickey.
Have you ever been called "Type A"? lol
BTW...I saw an old post of your on Geocaching.com today. You were showing off some of your sig coins.

I forget the personality types. That was back in high school.
Well speaking of my sig coins I made, here they are:
