Your boxes are beautiful, the detail makes each box special. I like to make boxes, also, but haven’t learned to chip carve witch adds a whole different level to any box. Congrats.

These are very original. I MUST give this a try someday. My Son said this would be great for a wooden photo album. Beautiful work!

Thanks to all, the celtic knots are the easest to cut but hardest to plot the pattern the kind of red-gold with a lot of carving, I got the pattern from a floor mat, and I tried to count how many cuts I had to make for that pattern, but there are just to many.
