Hand Carved Celtic Knot Mirror

Introduction: Hand Carved Celtic Knot Mirror

About: My background is in architectural drafting, and I use these skills to design things I make out of wood. I also make tutorials on youtube about using AutoCAD software, and I also write software for use in Au...

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?
