This dragon is the one peice I am most proud of. My “Hubby” loves dragons and at times we have several images (pics,prints,etc.)hanging in our house. I am proud because I used no pattern for this. So this is one item I did and the credit goes to me. It perhaps was the most nerve-wracking because of that very reason and the fact it was made for my “Hubby.” It is made from redwood,oak,cedar,and the back peice is a burned peice of wood found in the woodpile of a house fire.

I’m not much for the dragons – but the craftsmanship is great. BTW, I see you figured out how to post in the projects section – good for you.

Very cool, great use of all the different wood available, I especially like that you found a use for the “fire wood”.
