Cutting Board, chip carved tangle pattern

This pattern was inspired by the Zentangle method of free hand drawing. One line at a time, no drawing instruments. I like the free form nature of this pattern and feel it helps me expand my creativity into a new area of chip carving. You’ll surely see more tangle patterns!
Carved in basswood
Shown with Quick & Easy Finish (sealer and lacquer) and gel stained after Quick & Easy Finish.
Thanks for looking. Comments, ideas, critiques are always welcome.

I hope the owner of this beauty has enough sense to use it as a serving board and not a cutting board. It is too nice to be carved up cutting hot dogs.

A truly unique and incredible piece.

Fantastic job. Thanks for sharing.
I hope nobody will cut anything on it. I’d put it on the wall. :-)

Nice, clean cuts, and beautiful results, something that would take me weeks, if not months, to do.
You did some very nice and detailed work! Thanks for the show.

I love this one Marty. It really showcases your carving skill and it is more interesting too.

That is one sharp knife…. and a lot of patience…. and a lot of skillful execution. Impressed!
