A while ago I did some more carving. I had some mahogany offcuts from a local timber yard and decided to make a family present from one of them. I drew a shield knot onto the wood and then carved it out. I used the same tools as I used for the Wand last Friday – but no Dremel.
The carving took over a week but was incredibly relaxing to do. I really enjoyed it. Once I had the carving work done I painted the carved areas with a dark brown acrylic paint, to make it really stand out, and then varnished the whole thing.
Here’s the finished work:
