This is my attempt at the very popular Noah's Ark.  I used Walnut and Cherry Wood for the Ark and I used different types of wood from around the world for the animals.  I made this for my Grandson's Baptism and I can teach him about where the different animals come from by the wood I used for them.
Thanks for Looking

Wow
Nice job TommyT.
This was the first project I bought from Toymakingplans.com, and I still have not made it yet. 
Looking at yours makes me want to get it out and go to work.
Thanks for sharing.

Tommy T - Nice job Tommy and looks like a real quality finish on it - how many coats.
Using different woods makes it stand out from the others and I like what looks like either Purple Heart or Padauk for the fox is a nice touch or is it something else.

Thanks Udie.  I used 3 coats of Shellac for the finish.  The fox is Purpleheart.

Tommy T - When you use multiple coats of Shellac do you do any preparation to the previous coat before you apply the next coat. Things like dry or wet sand and what grit of sandpaper to you prefer to use.
I think this would really help our members who are interested in using Shellac for the first time.

   I just use brown Painters paper wadded up and gently rub the surface before applying the next coat.  That's about as fine of grit as you can get.  Works for me.
   If it makes a slightly whitish mark on the piece the best solution for a mark on Shellac is just More shellac.
Works for me.

That's a nice job Tommy with a beautiful finish. It's good to see the animals going in two by two...lol

Tommy T - Ceefa mentioned the animals are two by two - just curious my friend, when you cut out the animals did you cut them out one at time or stack cut them?
