Finally got a celtic knot done
Finally, after two failed attempts. I attended an IAP meeting where a talk on celtic knot making was presented and got a few new ideas to try. I cut the slots and glued the inserts in with tightbond wood glue instead of CA. Then when putting the tube in I swabbed the inside if the blank with CA as well as on the tube and this time no blowouts.
The blank is white oak and the inserts are red oak, several layers of CA on top of it.
