Every now and then, you need to try something new. It could be a new destination, a new type of food, or maybe something even bigger, like a move to a new place. For me, this usually means I get a new idea for something to make.
I once read a tip that if you inherit some tool from your grandfather, treasure them, as they may be old, but much better quality than what you might get today. I don't know if that's the case with the carving irons in the top picture, but I got them after my grandfather passed away a few years ago, and I am not about to toss them aside yet. I have dabbled a bit with them in the past, but now I felt like I should do something more extensive, so I spent an afternoon properly and painstakingly sharpening them, before I turned my mind to figuring out a pattern. I have always liked the intricate Viking or Celtic Knot patterns, and a piece of oak I had lying around with an interesting shape provided ample material. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of everything before I started carving...
First I carved away everything on the outside of the linear border, before removing the internal parts. Initially I only wanted to go to the depth visible in the first picture, but once I started carving the first 3D-effect of the knot, the parts that go over and under each other, I felt it was too shallow. In the second picture, you can see I've started digging a bit deeper, to give it a proper rounded effect. Again, I must apologize for forgetting to take more pictures, so I will have to leave off with one of the finished product instead. It's not super pretty, and very rough, but I like it, and the whole process has give me a fresh look on what I'm actually able to do in the workshop.
