  • Completion of the Dragon Challenge 2006

    Well people, the Dragon Challenge has come to a close. I've posted the completed projects that we were given photos of and they have a home on our website for the time being.

    I will be putting together a new front page for Sue's forum in the new year with the dragons in the various styles. I will also approach Bob to see if SSWC are interested in running a little "burp" about those who participated.

    Thank you to all who completed the challenge. It was very nice to see what people did with the design and how they put some personality into the dragon.

    Sue Chrestensen and I will be having another another challenge in the new year, and will be selecting the pattern soon. Looks like it might be a mask...something else to let the creative juices flow.

    Hope everyone had fun with the Dragon Challenge 2006.

    Take care

        Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

        Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

        My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
        I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
        Was it a good idea.....?...

        Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

        The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

        I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
