Beautiful…I see about the red. I am terrible with frames so take it lightly, but was thinking if a lacquer black frame might look good or a dark wood…... Really great carving…...........

Very Very cool. The red is perfect for this. It does not take away from it, it adds to the feel of the project. But like I have said before I too am becoming a dragon nut due to my husbands love for them. (Like yours, without wings) Chinese? I think they are. Anyway this is very nice.

Thanks for the great comments and the interesting words of advise. Jack, I’m not sure but black could be taboo in chinese whatever but a darker frame could add to the overall effect, thanks. Rod, I use pine for these larger carvings, no great financial loss if it turns into fire wood, use the faithful Dremel to remove excess wood after scrollsawing and hand tools for the intricate work. Look forward to seeing your dragons Allison, no large wings for the Chinese. Thanks again for all the other comments.

That sure stands out with the coloring. IMO, doing the frame dark would bring your eyes to the frame first instead of the carving. Very well done! Thanks for sharing another grand carving!
