I had a piece of plywood lying around not knowing what to do of it. Trash it! not possible. One day it may be useful. Last weekend I got an inspiration to put it to use by making a Zebra Swallowtail butterfly by using my fret saw. For the body of the butterfly a small dry twig which I had kept for some use came in handy. Antennas were made from a flexible metal wire from waste.The body is shaped by means of point files. I had to cut short a pair of swordlike tails extending from the hind wings to adjust the size on an A 4 paper. This can be used as a decorative piece on a wall by adding couple of other butterflies of different pattern. To avoid the glare of the flash seen in the third picture I used a brown paper in the background. I hope you like it.
