This was a build for a coworker. It was also my first attempt at carving….router and chisels ( I guess you have to start somewhere). I am pleased with the end product. Please check out the photo album of the whole build at my Facebook page. The link is below.

Patrick This is so good you have great vision and skill. The way you have carved the Celtic Symbol is really quite inspiring well done. I will for sure add your project to my Favorites. Regards Bazz.

Very nicely done, especially your Celtic knot carving.

Sweet chair.
Wonderful work on your first carving.
What tool/bit did you use for the textured background of the carving?

@ SASmith…. Dremel and diamond ball dremel kit from harbour freight. I have used this technique on my rifle grips.

Wow, I really like the simple lines and of course the carving. First rate.

Also salivating over your Festool’s!

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Have your say...
