Amazing what you fiond in wood sometimes. There I was hollowing out a piece of cherry and lo and behold I fond a dragons egg. The 'cave' is made from a piece of apple from an old orchard and the egg is (sadly) also turned by me and gilded. It all stands on a naturally riven slate base with a little piec eo some sort of fossil. Overall size is 9" (225mm) tall x 11" (280mm) wide x 6" (150mm) deep. The 'cave is finished with a hard wax polish fpor easy maintenance and durability.
