I haven’t posted in quite a while due to some health issues. I saw an interesting drawing of a dragon on the net that appealed to me. The colors attracted me and I decided to try and replicate the dragon in wood. At first, my intention was to use only varnished wood, like most other intarsia pieces I’ve created. But the that format just didn’t do justice to the artist’s drawing, so I decided to throw caution to the wind and paint parts of the Dragon. I like the outcome, I hope you do, too. I also hope that all my intarsia friends will forgive my use of paint. It turned out to be a fun, challenging project. Anyway, I’m gradually feeling better, so maybe I can finally get back into my shop and turn out some more new projects. Peace

I like the combination very well!

Great Job!

I do intend to try an intarsia project within the next few YEARS! I have ran scrollsaw for over 6 decades and never even tried one yet.

What we do is mostly craftsmanship, this moves into art.

Very nicely done.

(I am not a fan of painting Intarsia and prefer natural colors.)

Crazy Good.

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.

Thanks,

Ben
