I completed carving two more versions of the Trefoil Knot, these made from a piece of Figured Maple which was originally 3.25"x8"x8". I split it into two pieces each of size 1.5"x8"x8", and the final results were about 7.5" in diameter and 1.5" thick.

]]>The original wood block was 2.5"x8"x8", and the final piece is about 7.5" in diameter and 2" thick. The trefoil knot is formed by the raised edge which goes through the three holes, so this trafoil knot is embedded in a genus 3 surface. The curve, if seen from above follows the pattern usually used to draw a trefoil knot on paper, with alternating over and under crossings. It therefore shows the 3-fold symmetry of the trefoil better than if it had been carved as a (3,2) torus knot.

]]>A 4,2 torus link carved from Purpleheart wood. completed four new wooden torus knot sculptures, two from Purpleheart wood and two from Olivewood. One of the Purpleheart pieces came from a 2"x6"x6" block, and all the others were from 2"x4"x4" blocks. I made two (3,5) torus knots, one from the larger Purpleheart block and one from an Olivewood block. The other two smaller blocks were made into torus links, that is, two (2,1) torus knots linked, which happens when you make a (4,2) torus ``knot".
