Well as promised here are a few more shots of my dragon Foison. Progress has been slower than I expected but then 3 deaths and a devorice in the family have slowed things down a bit. I hope to have him completed and set in place by the end of the month. I still have a little more work to do on his head and then varnish!

How did you do this? Is it hand carved or dremel or well I really haven’t a clue but however it’s done it’s pretty amazing! What will you do with it?

*Sorry to hear about the deaths in your family and the divorce; sad.

Its a built up lamination that is both power tool and hand tool carved. What ever works for the task at hand.

Never heard of a Foison before. That is so cool. Way beyond woodworking and well into the art class.

Glad to see that Foison is gradually completing his slow growth to adulthood. Hope that your woodworking
is helping ease the pain of your problems and getting your life back on an even keel. Thank you for sharing.
