I started a new Celtic Knot

My last 2 pieces of carving went fairly well so I wanted to do something bigger.  So I glued up a 2 x 2 foot square of Black Walnut from the Cabin Wood mill.  I found a pattern on the internet and blew it up to fit my board.  I printed it out and glued it to the board.

I then took a V-gouge and carved the lines into the Board.  The gouge made little curls of wood.

I scraped the Paper off with a chisel.  This involved re-discovering that I now can make my tools VERY sharp.  This involved bleeding.

I started to remove wood from where it was not needed.

I stuck o Quarter in the center for scale.

It is still a work in progress.
