I was inspired of of celticknots and I drew a few curly lines. I wondred if it was possible to make this in 3D.
You can watch the video to see how I made it. have fun
Step 1: Drawing and Woodwork
I made the drawing again on a piece of meranti wood and started with drilling two holes wiht a 40mm forstner drillbit.
than blocking off the pieces with a handsaw. After that the hardwork started wiht chisels and Gouges. while cutting in the wood I tried to keep drawing intact by drawing the lines over and over again.
In the end finishing with a grater and sanding the almost ready sculpture.
At last putting some clear lacquer on.
Step 2: Stone Cutting
From our vacation in Wales we took some pieces of slate with us. One piece I cut a 90 degrees off with my tilesaw and began sanding with 400 grit waterproof sandingpaper. Drilling a 4mm hole and screw it all together.
Step 3: Finished
