Carving the cord and knots . It’s a challenge to carve into material 1/16-1/32″ deep without breaking through into the ebony. Solid bloodwood is relatively hard. Laminated bloodwood veneer, however, can be a wee bit brittle. I must go S L O W, keep the blade sharp, and remember to breathe! To the left, the seal cartouche also in-progress.
