  • 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..

                          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
