Chip Carved Box

Back to my celtic roots! I made this box from mahogany and yellow cedar. I cut the box using the scroll saw and chip carved the celtic design on the lid. I also chip carved a celtic knot on the inside of the lid. The mahogany is easier to chip carve than the yellow cedar.
Thanks for taking the time to look.

How lovely, Anna! It is truly a beautiful box! Chip carving is something I always wanted to try. I hope to do so one day.

Great project! Sheila :)

Thanks Sheila. I’m still practicing! The cuts are still not as clean as I would like them to be but I’m going to enter it anyway into a carving show next weekend.

Outstanding! Another hit. The Cletic motif is very nicely done.

Anna your work is beautiful. I love what you have done. I’m being selfish but I’ll vote for more knot work.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Anna, all your work is outstanding, but I’m just partial to the Cleltic knot work.
