This is another dragon I had posted before on my old page, but I wanted to put it on my new page. This was my second attempt at making a dragon and I paid a lot more attention to texture. I used a small burr to make each scale and used different kinds of wood to achieve more colors in the piece. Hope yall like it and any comments are always welcome. It was made out of teak, walnut, ebony, aspen, red heart, wenge, cherry, purple heart, yellow heart.

I like the way you cut, carve and rejoin the wood into beautiful works of art. Great work. Keep it coming!
