Everyone has been asking me to make a Dragonfly. So here is my rendition. The green coloured wood is Poplar and will darken with time. The wings are made of Figured Maple, so have beautiful markings. The Dragonfly's eyes are made of Ebony.
Hope you enjoy.
It is approximately 8" wide by 22" high. Other species of wood used are Redheart, Walnut and Cherry.
