This pattern was carved on the lid of a small box measuring 5″X5″.
So often the traditional route of carving a rosette within a square such as this is taken. Here, the square is emphasized with a diagonal cross. The use of the familiar three cornered chip sets out the cross nicely. Great care should be taken in carving the multiple lines that accent the cross and modified triangles. Keep your knife tip shallow.
This pattern is quick & easy to do, and a fresh idea for anyone looking for new directions for designs.
