Default Christmas Dragon

I have a good friend that LOVES Dragons. So I wanted to make something unique for her for Christmas.

I had found the idea from a picture of a dragon cut out of metal. (first picture)

I talked to my cousin, the artist in the family, I told her what I wanted to do and she designed the pattern so that the dragon could stand up.

The wood is from an old red cedar post top that a friend helped me rip last week with his table saw. I loved the look of the wood so much I had to use it.
Some of it had some very nice character streaks of white in it that I had to make use of. I off set the rear legs to give it more stability.

Unfortunately I didnt have a shiny diamond big enough to put in his hands, but she works with beads and wire jewelry and has access to stones and crystals to fill the need. She promised a picture of it when she finds something shiny to give her new red dragon.

Thanks for taking a look. Comments are welcome.
