This site created in 2002 To help you create your own Dragon sculpture's And to help nurture your interest in woodcarving. Okay !! and so I can show off.
A very warm welcome to you all.
You are here I hope because you would like to carve your own Oriental Dragon
If not then you have arrived at the wrong place, PLEASE do not run off, stay and have a look around you may have just discovered a new hobby.
Although this site is for those of you who wish to carve Oriental Dragons the tips / hints and techniques used can be put to any type of wood carving or wood sculpture.
DRAGONS The types of Dragons that we shall cover are mainly Chinese and Japanese Dragons From the simple to the complex I will even show you how to carve a free form Dragon wood sculpture ( no plans or drawings just carve )
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO START ?
That depends on you, you do not need to spend out on a lot of expensive tools and timber to start carving, you can start with a craft type knife set or a pocket knife if you like you can even use a power carver. One thing you can be sure of though is that you will not have to pay to complete one of my projects or pay to move on up to the next level of difficulty.
You can help me build this site into a useful reference tool. So please

What do I mean by FREE Free means for personal use only, you do not have permission to use any thing on this site for profit or business use, commercial or other wise. so the Free wood carving lessons Free carving designs due to abuse no longer available Free carving tips Free wood carving information are only free for personal use I retain the copyright to all my work
I aim to give information on wood carving suitable for the absolute beginner to the confident wood carver and in doing so provide a no nonsense informative site. How ever I do not intend to hold your hand you will be expected to learn to think for your self.
A little wisdom goes a long way.
It is not a sign of weakness to ask for advice. Nor is it a crime to be uninformed. But it is unforgiveable to choose ignorance.
SO ! If you need me to add more detail or explanations on the carving lesson pages then I will, if you need more information on any lesson e-mail me so that I know what changes to make.
