Deco II
#8
For those who follow my builds this is my latest "Deco II" This is what I'm calling it for now. This will be my most ambitious carving project to date. After returning the piece to the lathe and undercutting the rim I hand drew my filigree pattern on the rim to be pierced and carved. To protect my work from the oils in my hands while all of the carving process is going on I seal the pencil lines and wood with the end bit of a lacquer rattle can. After carving the rim I'll add some pyrography to it and add some details to the base.

Most of the carving is done with the Flexcut knife in the photo, it out lines the drawing, removes large sections between the holes that I drill with my Dremel and does a great deal of the detailing. When I get to the very small things I use Flexcut micro gouges and these burs for the Dremel.
