Chequering Toolbox with Dragon Pyrograph Decoration.

Chequering Tool Box

I bought some chequering tools which came in an awful cardboard box which looked awful. So Aldwarke very kindly and most expertly made me a wooden tool box for them. As you can see below it took some precision measurements and cutting to get the hollows the exact size for the tools.

So when I got hold of this beautiful box I obviously wanted to decorate it with something that would do justice to the wonderful craftsmanship that went into the box itself.

Initially I had planned to decorate the box with hand cut and carved swamp dragons based on the marvellous Paul Kidby illustrations of swamp dragons for the Terry Pratchett Discworld series. However they were too bright and orange to match the more golden wood finish of the box so I cancelled that idea and tried some hand cut and burned traditional Chinese twin dragons

The Chinese twin dragons were too small and detailed to work well on the box lid. so I decided to cancel that idea too and instead go for one bigger Chinese dragon in gold which would match the colour of the golden wood finish on the box.
