“This is awesome. My son is very into dragons and scroll sawing. Is there any chance yoy can share the pattern? He would love to try and copy it.”

Ben here is the link to the dragon pattern I used. There are literally hundreds of dragon patterns your son can choose from. Here is the link to the pattern I used:

Sorry, but there is no real pattern. I made my own pattern from the drawing (that’s a whole job in itself). There are lots of other dragons on pinterest that are more like real patterns. Maybe your son can use one of those that he would like. However, here is how I created my own patter: (1) Used photoshop to remove the color. (2) saved that file as a pdf file. (3) Printed the file on multiple 8×10 pages. (4) Pieced the pages together to form the whole dragon (you’ll be able to make the dragon as large or small as you want during the pdf printing.) By the way, you’ll probably want to print multiple copies because you are going to destroy parts of the pattern in the process of building the dragon. Now, having explained all that, I can save you a lot of time if you can somehow give me your email so I can send you the pdf pattern I created. I numbered the pattern pieces (mostly) and all you will need is a program that will print pdf files…like photoshop. If we go that route, all I ask is that you don’t publish my pattern, I’m willing to give it to your son so he can sink his skills into a challenging intarsia. If you don’t want to publish your email, but you have Facebook, I think I can PM the pattern to you on Messenger, but I’ve never done that before, so I’m just guessing at this point. If you can think of a better way, I’m certainly open to suggestions. Peace, Bubbs.
