  • Dragonfly

    Here is a dragonfly I designed and cut today. Have had so much fun with Diana's birdhouses and butterflies that I decided to try one for myself. His body is 3 5/8" long and made of walnut. His wingspan is 4 1/8" and made with 1/8" maple.

      Very cool, you have done well.
      Are the wings slotted into the body?

                        I just came across this and I love it! It looks very delicate and the combination between fretwok on the wings and compound cut body is really cool!

                                I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                                I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                                Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
