  • Celtic knot-shamrock cross

    My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work. All in all it was a struggle and in the end it was stubborness more than anything else that kept me going. So today finally I got it finished, this despite of a crack in one of the slabs of wood I only discovered after I already cut 3/4 of the pieces. All in all, it turned out no too shabby, I wish I could claim that I deliberately made the lines a little wobbly.and uneven to give the piece a deliberate folksy boho feel, but truth is, that is about the limits of my scrollsawing ability.

    Very nice. I thought it was carved.

      Not quite carved, although I did go overboard a bit using my Dremel to smoothen the edges of the 'ropes'. Still they were cut out piece by piece, sanded/smoothed and glued into place.
