Celtic Knot Bottle Stopper

This was my first attempt at a celtic knot. It is cherry with black walnut. Another stopper made of cherry. Looking forward to trying more. I plan on buying some veneer to use this weekend.

I like these.

How about a close up of the Celtic knot one. Hard to see the details in the picture.

I try to get a better picture. The only walnut I had had some sap wood and you can see it in the knot. Next time I am going to use thinner wood (veneer) for the knot. If Klingspor has it I am going to get some black walnut and maple veneer this Sat. It's a pain to cut and glue four times. I waited about 3 to 4 hours between each cut. Do you think I could do it in less time?

Additional Picture

This is not a very good picture. It looks good thru the view finder but when i take the picture the picture in the view finder (actual picture) is hard to see due to the glare. I don't know how to turn the flash off on the camera as i believe that is the problem.

When I can't figure out how to turn it off, I just put my finger over the flash (and sometimes do that without planning it )

Aside from the glare, the shot really helps us see how you constructed the knot -- it looks very nice

I hadn't thought of using my finger but I guess that should work. I have one more Glued up and ready to turn. It's the same as cherry and black walnut.

I love those stoppers.

To help with the flash i try to put a single or double layer of tissue paper over it to difuse the light....helps most of the time.

Thanks guys. It took me longer to prepare the blank than to turn it? However, I like the way it turned out so I plan to do more.

It's a fancy lamination done before you start turning the blank. Search on YouTube for "celtic knot pen" and you should find a video of a youngster who makes them to build up his college fund.
