Routing Inlays #1: TWO CELTIC PATTERNS SIMPLIFIED

04-07-2010 04:20 AM by Maclegno | 14 comments »

INTRODUCTION.. When I started experimenting with using my router for inlays I thought only in the context of straight lines since that was what routers did best. Unfortunately my tastes in designs included Celtic Art especially Knot-work which is mostly curves. These would obviously need some sort of template to guide the router. A cursory inspection of a typical Celtic Knot suggests that they are too complex for a simple template. However a closer examination and study convinced me that s...

Celtic Knot Pens #1: One way to do it

09-06-2007 04:24 PM by Gary | 16 comments »

This was requested from multiple sites, so I did one for everybody. Here’s some photos of my process;I only had enough time to do a two-ring knot, but it’sall the same to make a four-ring knot accurately if you follow these steps. This shows the miter sled, the length of contrasting wood for the slices, and the bloodwood blank I’m going to use. I’ve already squared the blank so that all four sides are the same size.I randomly pick a side and mark it 1.Side 2 i...

Routing Inlays #2: MORE CELTIC INLAYS

04-22-2010 03:16 AM by Maclegno | 8 comments »

INTRODUCTIONThere is very little new in this Blog, I intend to show more examples of how to analyse, and make templates for, more Celtic Patterns. I should point out that the examples shown here and in my previous Blog are all prototypes and not display-class pieces. Here are three more examples: TRINITY, and what I will call SQUARE KNOT and PENDANT:.. TRINITY.This must be the most ubiquitous and simplest Celtic Knot, yet is still elegant. ....The template for this is very simple and obvio...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #210: Celtic Candle Tray

12-30-2010 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a fine day. It felt great to be able to get back to the scroll saw and make something again. I know it was only a couple of weeks, but it seemed like ages since I had cut and getting back to it was very rewarding and relaxing. I cut out the next candle tray in the series. I still need to cut the charms out today and then I will be able to photograph it properly, but I at least took a couple of snapshots of it so I could show it here. I choose a Celtic design a...

Routing Inlays #3: Something Completely Different

04-24-2010 03:08 AM by Maclegno | 4 comments »

INTRODUCTION.. NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT As they used to say on MONTY PYTHON’S FLYING CIRCUSWhile browsing on the Net recently I came across the following Photo (in DEVIANTART.COM an excellent source of design ideas) of a painting containing a metal Celtic brooch. I was attracted by its simple lines. I had previously been toying with the possibilities of using soldering wire as an inlay medium purely as a type of stringing. But seeing this brooch started me thinking that...

Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork - Intarsia Woodworking

03-04-2013 03:29 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork – Intarsia Woodworking There is no beginning and there is no end. The roots and the branches of the Celtic Tree of Life Knotwork intertwine and become one. This Celtic knotwork design symbolizes timelessness of nature and creates balance and harmony. The lines in this project never end. I have not given Celtic knotwork much thought in the past when it comes to creating Intarsia pieces until I was asked to do the Celtic Love knotwork project a while ba...

Epona Celtic Horse Knotwork - Intarsia Woodworking

03-05-2013 03:01 PM by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

Epona Celtic Horse Knotwork – Intarsia WoodworkingEpona was a goddess of great strength to the ancient Celts. She is the protector of horses and symbolized understanding, vitality, and Independence. I chose to do this Epona Celtic Horse Knotwork piece because of the beauty in the design and in the meaning. As I talked about in prior knotwork articles, I have come across several knotwork projects that I am exploring. I found a similar design to this while at a festival and I fell in love how ...

Celtic #1: Celtic clock

02-16-2014 11:15 AM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

I have been working on this project on and off for the last year, The wood is Ancient Kauri, from the northern island of New Zealand. This is a rare wood due to it’s age and manner of preservation. In the Great Flood, these trees were buried in masses of mud, silt, and vegetation, which preserved them for thousands of years. Today they are excavated from the ground, cut and dried and sold as an exotic wood. Kauri trees still exist today in small stands and are a protected species availa...

Celtic #2: Celtic clock

02-17-2014 09:34 AM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

Due to catastrophic structural failure during the carving process, I am laying this project to rest. While the breakout in the back was more severe than I thought it would be, I could work that out. Not so the splits in the outer wall of the piece. Although fun while it lasted ( I will be redoing this project in the future, but in walnut as I believe a harder wood will stand up to the stresses of the carving needed to accomplish the design), I will now be on to other projects, the Sawcliffe G...
