It appears to be missing the bottom half of the knot. Was this intentional?

Nice job Steve I'm impressed with your Knot. I think John might have your knot confused with a Celtic Cross. Either way, very nice work and I'd like to know how you did it.

its just the angle of the pic!!

pretty simple really, a fairly precise square piece of wood(7/8 sq) and some shop cut veneer, thickness depends on the bandsaw kerf

here's my bandsaw sliding table and a dial guage for the tablesaw to cut the veneer

the sled for the bandsaw cuts stopped kerfs with a stop to ensure they are all the same

my bandsaw kerf is a hair under 1/32, my tablesaw blade is 3/32, so I move the fence each time 0.120 inches for a piece that almost slides right in the kerf. a little sanding makes it fit

yeah, both my tablesaw and bandsaw are older than most of us here, so is my lathe.

Nice Work Steve,
It is great to see some old solid equipment.
Nice job on matching the Kerf.
Excellent Celtic Knot, Turning, Fit and Finish.
Congratulations,

more to come! ive made up a dozen blanks of the maple with walnut banding and tried one reversed, ie walnut with maple banding. not so good, walnut sanding dust is embedded in the softer maple changing it from white to a light brown, suggestions are welcome. the "muddy" colour is most obvious where the maple grain is at 45 degrees, so almost endgrain.

ive also started another blank as a test, this time a six sided "knot". for this, I started with a carefully cut hexagonal blank, it will get 6 inserts instead of the four as before. we'll see what happens

yes, Brian, my shop is full of old iron. the bandsaw is a 1915 Crescent 20, the tablesaw is 1930's(approx.) delta 1160 tilt top, and my lathe is a 1940's Henry Power Tools(London Ont, Canada).

I have a complete woodworking shop(in old iron), but these three are most related to turning!!

and here is the hexagonal blank with 6 inserts. the only complicated thing about this is cutting an accurate hexagon. it MUST be a true hexagon for the kerf cutting to be accurate

I love your tools ... Does the dial guage on your tablesaw move the fence or just to measure with ?
