I'm up for whatever. Rather spend my thought process figuring out how to interpret the task and not on what the task is :yes:

I guess I won't be doing the one below then.

Can't see a way of doing it will only 3 tools.

That is, if I read the rules right whistle.gif

Sure you can. Unless you're assembling something out of it, that should only take 2 tools - swivel knife and beveler (Mallet's don't usually count as a tool)

Get started and get it done man!! I probably won't get to start mine until at least Sunday.

Hammers do not count!!!!!!!!!!!!

You should have no problem doing it with only 3 that is pretty liberal 3 tools I think for a challenge:)

Here is mine just carved:)

I sharpened the dog mess out of my SK today! Holy Crap!!!!!!! What a difference!!!!!:) Got some new jewelers rouge and made a new strop...since my last one went MIA!

I will tool later:) I have 2 more:)

LOL I have nightmares about Celtic Knots. I tried to draw one ... ugg. I think I had too many dots to start with and it looked like doo doo.

You have a computer...just google images celtic knots and use your computer screen as a light box and trace one out:)

I would never in a million years try to draw one from scratch...Celtic knots are my KRYPTONITE!

That is why I knew it would be a good challenge! There are lots of great people on this forum rocking some knots...not me:) but other people:)

Like Sheridan Carving...Celtic Knots are a specialty all their own that people struggle with...like me:)

My knife is so incredibly sharp right now I feel like a kid again...lost!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to do this challenge before I started back on the door panels, it needs to be just a little less sharp! Goodness gracious like butter!!!!!!!!! Greasy, full fat, delicious butter!

So many over layer knife marks in that one i just did hahahaha...didn't help both my kids where screaming not wanting to go to bed...a little distracting...

i like my excuses hahahahhaaha:)

Tighten up I know I am slacking today...

BUT MY SK IS SHARP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could shave with it right now:)

Do like my Dad did me. "Sylvie, if you don't be quiet and go to bed RIGHT NOW... Your bed time will be right after dinner for a month! Now get in there and get to sleep."

:evillaugh:

I love a nice sharp knife... can't stand a dull one at all... drives me batty.

Yes, I know the computer image and light box trick. I'll look around and see what I can find.

I've got to get started on another guitar strap soon... this one with elk tracks....

And God knows how many wet formed pick pockets I'll have to make over the next few days. lol I kind of hope it's a lot.

Damn, this one falls just outside the rules, swivel knife, 2 boarder stamps and a hair tool.

WHY did I use that hair tool???? bawling.gif

It's 18" or 455mm in diameter.

Now I have a dilemma...................
