Found out how to do this Celtic Knot on YouTube and decided to give it a try.
I love the way this looks and want to do a bunch more. I used Purpleheart and Padouk for the inlay.
I also made a couple of pens using an LJ video (which I can’t find to give the guy credit) whereby you don’t cut all the way through the blank like a Celtic Knot. You stop just short, leaving about one quarter of length uncut and then insert the piece of inlay. After turning it looks sort of like lightning bolts.
Turning pens is more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
