Posted By on November 2, 2009

Two posts ago I shared the “Autumn Dragon” made by K. Pavel from Russia .

And since I got good responses, I now decided to show the roses made in same technique.

Virtual lesson from Natalia. The entire sequence of manufacturing such a great bunch – in pictures and comments are here : www.lobzik.pri.ee

As they say on their website :

Copyright bladed weapons (damask steel) will not leave indifferent neither just an amateur, not a true collector.

Autumn Dragon

I found this little dragon on  www.lobzik.pri.ee and I think its very well done and so cute that I have to share it.  Its made by K. Pavel from Moscow Region , Russia .autumn dragon

dragon from leaves

He used maple leaves, hawthorn leaves and branches of lilac, pine cones, thread, glue. So I think this qualifies as woodwork.

You know you’re a woodworker if/when:

1. You spend $500 on wood and new tools to complete a project for your wife that you could have just bought for $75 at the local furniture store.

2. You refuse to throw away your sawdust because you can use it to make your own filler (even though you have 4 barrels of assorted sawdust just in case).

3. You come home from work and the kids find you still in a suit and tie in front of the workbench covered in shavings a half an hour later.

4. You can tell the front from the back of a box you made because the back has a pin hole in the back that you repaired and nobody can see it except you.

You know you’re a woodworker if/when:

1. You can tell how many tools you’ve sharpened this week by the number of bald spots on your forearms – or legs if that’s how you check your edge.

2. You get the Sunday paper just for ads on Furniture you can make, or Tools you can buy on sale.

3. You havn’t bought a razor in years, because you’re sharpening skills are that good!

4.You try to persuade your neighbor to trim his trees so you can get some extra wood.

5. Your honey would rather you wore gloves to bed than to allow you to touch her with your scratchy rough hands!
Thats it for tonight… gotta go get the kids to bed and find some soft gloves.
