Dragon Design Challenge

Dragon Design ChallengeTransform these fierce dragons into a functional design

Dragons are symbols of mystery and mayhem, and these two have brought a little of both to the Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts editorial office.

When Lora S. Irish sent this pattern to us, we fell in love with the design. But, we ran into trouble figuring out the best way to transform the pattern into a project.

We decided to offer the pattern to our readers as-is to see what you do with it.

The pattern is printed in Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Fall 2012 (Issue 48), but we wanted to give you the chance to get started right away.

So here’s our challenge to you: Take this pattern and make something with it. We can imagine a picture frame, mirror, miniature stool, or box lid. What do you see? The only rule is that the design must be functional (don’t make a plaque). Otherwise, it’s up to you to work out the construction details.

Send pictures of your completed project to Dragon Design c/o Bob Duncan, Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts, 1970 Broad St., East Petersburg, PA 17520, or e-mail high-resolution photos to Duncan@foxchapelpublishing.com. The editors will choose a few designs to highlight in a future issue.

The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2012.
