Here is a dragonfly I designed and cut today. Have had so much fun with Diana's birdhouses and butterflies that I decided to try one for myself. His body is 3 5/8" long and made of walnut. His wingspan is 4 1/8" and made with 1/8" maple.

Very cool, you have done well.
Are the wings slotted into the body?
