  • Inlaid Dragon Puzzle

    I took a page from Cathie Jade's book, and added my own special twist...

    I made this for my grand-nephews 3rd B-day...

    Measures 8" X 9.5". Made from aspen, butternut, cherry, and poplar with 1/8" and 1/4" BB ply.
    There are only four pieces to the dragon, and of course 5 pieces for the name...
    I added flocking to the back of the pieces to make it a little easier to assemble.

    I made this easle so it can be displayed in his room.

    I designed it hoping he'll be able to display it for many years to come...

    Thanks for clicking in....

    As always, comments and critique are welcome...

    Jim very fine work indeed.

    When I look at people's work on here, I tend to slip them into three catagories without too much analysing.

    1) That's nice - I could do that.
    2) Ah hah that's a good idea I could use that in some way.
    3) Oh My, some day I might just do that.

    I put this in 3 Jim.

                That is very cool, your nephew will surely treasure it for years to come! And I agree with Mayo on his approach and where he put this one, a definite 3 for me.

                      Nicely done. I like that you went the extra and made the easel. Nice touch.

                        Thanks for the accolades everyone.
                        Tyler's so cute. The first words out of his mouth were, "That goes on my bureau."
                        Not to worry WD, Tyler is a fearless dragon slayer.

                        Hopefully, he'll still have it when he's 20..

                          Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
