This is another dragon I made for an event coming up, so sorry except for a few Christmas gifts your going to see some more dragons until spring. No I don’t spend most of my time in my parents basement playing roll playing board games (no offense if you do), but I do enjoy making dragons. Everyone knows what a tiger is supposed to look like, but with a something like this I can really let my imagination run wild. I think a found forum that would be interested in buying some dragons and the like. This piece was made out of teak, walnut, mohogany, ebony, cherry, purple heart, blood wood, wenge, aspen, and poplar. I did a lot more carving on this one for detail work. Thanks for taking the time to look at my post.

Awesome work, great job on the dragon. I love dragons too. When i was in the sevice the mascot for my branch was the dragon. One day i will make me one, i done a little intarsa not much. By the way, last week end i seen the movie how to train your dragon it was great. Again you do superb work.

Well, as a gamer in my very young days no offense taken. LOL, looks great, though. I’ve been thinking about trying intarsia, how many hours/weeks would you say this monster took from start to finish? The detail is really incredible.

That really takes some skill and patience. Keep them coming.

I made the pattern from a pic off the internet and that took about 20 hours. I’m still learning the program so that time should take less as time goes by. The actual work took about 30 hours, but as always, if I had better tools it would taken less (please let my wife know the last fact and Christmas is around the corner lol).

Grate job! Very well done. I like the fact that you used different woods instead of stain.

Lovely job, Kory. If it were double sided it would look great on the prow of a viking longship.
