I decided to make this articulated Dragon pull toy for my Grandson’s 1st Birthday. This is my 1st attempt at an articulated toy. I used Blood wood for the body and wheels; and walnut for the hips, legs, tail, and cowl. I choose lace wood for the wings to give them them the look of scaled wings. I am including a link to a short YouTube video I made of the Dragon in action.

I appreciate all the comments. It was a labor of love.

Several of you asked me where I got the plan for the Dragon. It is in the April 2000 edition of Woodworker’s Journal. The article includes everything you need to build your own.

Thanks again for all the kind words of encouragement.
