Introduction: Hand Carved Celtic Knot Mirror

This is a small mirror that I have carved. It is made of MDF and stained with a mix of acrylic paint and boiled linseed oil. It has 2 glass beads hot glued to the surface. I created the design using the software AutoCAD, then printed out the design onto 2 A4 sheets of paper, then glued them to the MDF surface to begin the carving process. I have attached the DWG file I created for the design.

    I really like this - great design and well executed. How did you do the actual carving? Did you use hand tools or a dremel?

    Ah, I see more details of your carving and staining methods under your other instructables. I am really impressed by your work.
