chip and circular moulding carving

Just finished this box for the Celtic arts Foundation.  It will hold an award for a bagpipe competition at our annual Highland Games.

It is red oak and basswood.  The joints of the frame are scribed mortice and tenon, thanks to Roy Underhill’s joinery class.  And the circular moulding benefitted from Mary’s recent lesson on carving serpentine moulding.  The celtic knotwork is not my design, but came out nicely as a chip carving, I think.  Incised carving also helps reduce the fragility of the ornament, given how the box will be used.
