Just some small objects (4 cm) to test my new carving chisels and gouges:
- a moebius strip (ligustrum), like the recycling symbol;
- a celtic knot (pear root), the idea from another lumberjock member, thanks Yuri
- a simple knot (ligustrum).
All finished with tung oil
Thank you

Nice clean carvings. It looks like the test was successful.

you’ll have to mail those to me for me to believe they are made of wood. the bottom one looks like a rubber band. i’ll never understand you carvers… very impressive. looks like you did well on your chisel set.

Very impressive. How do you manage to hold the pieces while working on them ?
