Phoenix and Dragon

by Lambdafarm on July 30, 2011

This is made from 1/8th inch thick redwood.  The wood was an off cut and I bought it from the sale table at Wood World in Dallas.  It was so fragile that I had to turn the saw blade speed all the way down and go very slow so it didn’t shatter.  The posts are brass rods, and the base is poplar.  I treated the whole thing with boiled linseed oil, and it really brought out the beauty of the redwood.  The pattern, by Wayne and Jacob Fowler,  appeared on page 36 of the September, 2009 issue of  Creative Woodworking and Crafts.
