I cut the blank for this celtic knot out of mahogany using my scroll saw. I then carved in the detail using a small carving knife. I finished it with Danish oil. I had a challenge finding a clasp to attach the chain. I ended up using a clasp from an old piece of jewelry.
Thank you for looking. Any comments always welcome.

Too bad you didn’t have some bog oak for that one. Nicely done.

Beautiful! The carving really brings out the intricacy of the Cletic knot. I hope everyone takes the time to “Zoom” view your work to appreciate the detail, especially the 2nd and 3rd photos.

Thank you all or taking the time to look and for your kind comments. John, I’d love to carve this in bog oak – I think I’d need to do it with power tools though!

If you can get some bog oak, all you should need is well honed tools, and patience. Sorry I don’t have any, or I could share.
