This small dish (4 5/8W x 7/8D) and stand are made from cypress. I used my Lichtenberg machine to burn the inside of the dish. The pattern in the upper right reminded me of a dragon that you see in a Chinese parade, thus the name. C&C welcomed.

I like that and yes it does look like a Chinese Dragon.Sometimes less is more and you have just enough embellishment, instead of all over the piece. Thumbs Up

Steve

I think it came out great.

I do not know if you remember awhile back my suggestion of someone trying to so some light carving and then doing the burning to see if it would go the cut lines very well or not but you might see if it would work.

I still have not bought one yet but I do have the neon transformer that is still sitting in my shop.
