I made a kuksa style cup out of a sycamore blank,I used a mixture of handtools and powertools to make the cup.I got to use my favourite wine rack as a template again to route out the bowl of the cup.
I finished it to 600grit,oiled and waxed it.The cup is a present for my friend.I made a video of the process of making the cup please have a look subscribe and share thanks!

Hey Marty,the template is a cheap wine rack I picked up in the super market as soon as I seen it I knew it would be a perfect template,it cost €7 and there was 2 in the box.i have used it for a few different projects now.heres a link http://www.rothoshop.ch/en/Boxes/Household-supplies/Wine-rack-acrylic.html The bit is a trend radius cutter
