Heres some cool projects this week.
I was fortunate enough to get ahold of some large Sumac, almost 8” in diameter.
Ive been freshening up on my Kuksa carving and have been able to carve one of them in about 2-3 hours.
It definitely depends on how tough the wood is that I’m working with.
The bowls are carved bark side down, which gives the cool rings inside the bowl.
I used a 2” gouge to carve out the bowl, and I have this elbow adze iron.. its hard to explain this one because it was custom made, but its almost like a swan gouge type thing to get the bottom of the bowl. I used a 2” carving knife and axe to finish the outsides.. and thats about it :)
Looks cool though eh? Sumac is awesome!
