  • The Guardian dragon completed - finally!

    I finally finished The Guardian dragon pattern by Bruce Worthington. There are 175 pieces, the largest pattern I have done so far. It was certainly a challenge.

      The use of the wood grain is fantastic. One of the nicest versions of this project that I've seen. Bet it makes you smile every time you look at it!

        You certainly were more than up to the challenge. Beautiful in all respects and you really understand how to enhance thing using the grain and wood selection. Just a wonderful job.

          A stunning beautiful piece of artwork you have handcrafted. I love the wood used in the wings. Thanks for sharing.

                This is a great pattern and you have done a great job executing it. The detail inn the head and the tail are great. Thanks for sharing.

                      Your choice of woods and shaping are right on. A work of art.

                        As the others have said, your wood choices are exceptional. Are the horns curly maple?

                          Rolf, the horns are poplar with some carving done to the ones on the head. I was going for horns that looked like some big mountain goats.

                              Excellent! The dragon is gorgeous! I want to mention particularly a very successful choice of wood for the membrane of the wings.

                                I am thinking that the light comes up from the base and when the cutout is turned it also changes the pattern on the base.

                                Nope just went back and watched again. Sure would like to find some pattern for that.

                                Wolfenstein was, is still great. back in the early 80s I worked as a repair tech for Covox. We made Sound Master sound cards for Apple, Commador, and IBM. Part of the system was voice recongition. Lost many hours trying to get voice commands to work with the card.
