  • Guardian Dragon

    I finally got the dragon finished this evening. I used walnut and hickory for the wing. And 100 yr old green poplar, cherry, and aspen for body.
    Pattern is by Bruce Worthington..

        Nice work! The color choices are great.

                A work of art, Michael. I saw that in the current issue and said 'no way'.

                  Well, I saw it and thought "darn straight I'm going to do this one!!!" Already collecting my woods, holly so far for the white, green poplar and walnut. Still deciding on the rest. Will be going to my favorite mill next week to see what I can get. And if I get stuck, there's always Hearne's in PA. Now there are some great wood$ there. Just checked Hearne's and there is Tasmanian blackwood. I used this wood a few years back for a box and it was georgous!! That will find it's way into this dragon. Check out their site, their wood is amazing. Hearnehardwoods.com.

                    Very nice! Lots of pieces/work, but well worth it for the final look.

                                Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                                Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....

                                I need hug therapy. Between my wife then I having Covid we pretty much isolated the last month. No energy still. Have not even walked into the shop in weeks.

                                I did touch therapy since it helps my sister in law so much. I saw it, I touched it and the money flew out of my bank courtesy of Drs. JC Penney and New Balance. Back to the saw tomorrow. I haven’t touched it in a week. And the beat goes on.
