I posted this one on my old page, but it is one of favorites and I would like to have it on this page. This was the first project that made the pattern from a picture I found last year. I really like making this kind of art, because I can really use my imagination and I’m not restricted by the norm. Everyone knows what a tiger or elephant looks like, but who knows what a dragon looks like? This piece was made from blood wood, walnut, mahogany, ebony, poplar, cherry, curly maple, and yellow heart. I really liked the way the body turned out, I wanted it to look like armor so I used a round burr to make small indentions on the wood. I then sanded it with a very small flap sander with a rotary tool. Hope yall like it and if you posted a comment on my old page, thanks. If it’s your first view, thanks for looking.

Yep, first time I’ve seen your dragon, and I’m almost speechless. (And that doesn’t happen often!)

Great work, thanks for sharing it with us here.
