These were fun little things to carve. I tied a knot in a rope and tried to carve it… It came out a lose knot.
The knot is from Black Walnut, the spiral things are from Black Walnut, Jacaranda, Spalted Maple. They are finished in a poly spray.
Thanks for viewing.

I traced it with my finger several times to make sure it was continuous.
Totally cool : )
How long does it take you to carve one of these ?

These are pretty awesome. A great brain teaser. I had to take a double take. I couldn’t imagine carving those out. Great job!

All of them are amazing – I’d be proud to own any of them, let alone to have created them!

That is really very very beautiful fine craftwork of imaginative craftsman.
Great excellent work!

I came to realize the diffrent satisfation between making furniture and doing a craftwork when I started making a knife handle. I guess like I do, you were really devoted and obsessed to this work. And when it finally completed, you gained kind of satisfaction that you yourself know.

Great Idea….very cool…..being a very novice carver…I am always looking for nice projects to practice with….those would be excellent….

I was also thinking that they would make excellent style additions to projects, boxes or as great buckles for ribbon boxes (I believe woodsmith had a nice ribbon box in a recent issue).

Thanks for the great inspiration.
