I have never made a dragon before because I just wasn’t interested. When I saw this pattern in the most recent issue of ScrollSaw Woodworking, By Judy and Dave Peterson, I suddenly became interested. It was supposed to be a freestanding puzzle but I took a little licence and made it without the jigsaw cuts. This guy is going to sit on the shelf above my desk so he can keep track of what i am doing.

Nice. been tempted to get a scroll saw but like I told Shipwright no room in the shop now! The last issue of Popular woodworking had an article on Marquetry and was thinking again!

Great Dragon. I bet you get requests for some from people that see it.
