A traditional drinking vessel from Finland – The wood is Norwegian Maple (spalted), rescued from the firewood pile. The vessel is completely carved, drilled band-sawn and sanded by hand, with a little help from electricity (90%).

The vessel is about 4” high, the finish is sanding sealer and wax for the outside, the inside is finishing oil (4 applications) – not to sure how the oil will stand-up to the application of schnapps (Vodka) to the inside!.

I think all 4 projects took about 6 to 7 hours to complete over 2 days (drying time for the stain mainly) – it is marvelous how the use of electricity speeds the process.
