This is a rosette which started with an incident: I inadvertently carved through the disc at the first ‘valley’ (thanks to the lapboard, no accident followed ;o)). My temptation was to throw the project away and start anew. But then I was inspired to use the incident by replicating it, hence the result. Lesson learned: do not be discouraged by mistakes, but try to fix them and often nobody could tell. ;o)) It is basswood, stained directly, without a sealer, with a diluted water-based stain.
