Wooden Dragonfly

I made a start on some new products today, one of which is carved decorative dragonflies, now before people start saying Dragonflies have four wings, and your right, these are designed as representations only and are decorative pieces and not scale models, although i do have a couple of larger versions in process that will have four wings.

The body is approx 8 inches in length and is made from a single piece of wood that has been carved to shape, the wings are made from pared down timber than was then further reduced on the shave horse with a draw knife, the completed Dragonfly is then attached at an angle to a stand, the entire finish on these is as it came off the knife, which really does add to the shape and general feel of it.
