  • Eragon the Lindworm / Dragon.

    Hello Community,

    So now it's done. Eragon is ready. It's a present for my wife, she wished it. I have carved it on the model of the dragon from the German legend from the Middle Ages "the Nibelungenlied". It took a long time to finish, but I think it was worth it. He stands in front of our house and guards it. In addition to the pure carvings, also specific carpentry, such as dressing, sawing, gluing, planing and doweling were necessary. It was a good exercise in dealing with wood. But now see for yourself.

    Viele Grüße aus Deutschland

    Well done Jakob!... I am sure your wife will be very happy with Eragon. We say here in Canada .." Happy wife = Happy life" ...
    If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

      Hello Soggy,

      "Happy Wife = Happy Life." These are smart words.

          Great work, love how he goes in and out of the gravel.

            Excellent work, Jakob! Do you have the pieces connected under the gravel?

              The color contrast: green and gray. Very well designed and carved.
              As Claude asks: are the pieces joined under the gravel?

                Jakob, Like it, like it, like it. might have to try one for my wife. It would defiantly be an eye catcher for the front yard

                  @claude, @Robson valley
                  No the pieces are not connected under the gravel. They are stuck on metal poles in the ground.

                  @Robson Valley,
                  I also think the green color goes well with the gray gravel. It is a glaze of Sikkens, it was specially mixed, "Sikkens Cetol HLS Extra". The color protects against sunlight and moisture. I have deleted the Lindwurm three times. Under the glaze is "Sikkens Cetol Aktiva", against rot and fungal attack.
                  Robson Valley, I have followed your advice and used the Sikkens products. They were relatively expensive, but I think they will protect the wood well. Thanks again for your advice.

                  Thank you for your praise, if you also want to carve such a dragon, I will help you. If you have questions, you can always ask me. Your wife would certainly be happy about such a figure

                    Very cool. How big is it? In the first photo, it looks small. In the second, much bigger.

                    Now you need to start work on your castle. Your wife may have had a game plan that you didn't know about...

                      Well done Jakob, your Lindworm turned out beautifully.

                      Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.

                        Hello Tom,
                        The Lindwurm is 1.70 meters long and measured at the head 45 cm high. My wife already has a castle, she is standing in her room on the table.

                              I like this very much! Your carving of the head and the spine really make for a great piece. Nicely done!
