Default Chip Carving a basket weave pattern

I'm looking for some help in chip carving a basket weave pattern on a box. I have it laid out and have chipped out some of the pattern, but it looks like a bunch of tiny squares in rows. Are there any suggestions for getting the over and under pattern of the weave to look right?

I've done that once in a class with Wayne Barton. We started drawing the lines diagonally one way, and then the other. Then it looks like a weave. You can see what I mean with the attachment. It's not very good, I just copied it from a web image, but it might help.

Good Luck,

I chip carve Celtic designs and the knotwork is a kind of weave. Carving a thin line at the intersections does the trick. You don't have to slant the cuts to show going over and under. Even though it is a flat surface, it gives the illusion of weaving.
