Carved from a 5 inch birch branch. I’m completely new to drawknives and spokeshaves and am having an absolute blast with them.

The spalting was a nice surprise, so I shaved away until it appeared on the front face. Finished with BLO, varnish oil, beeswax.

It really compliments the wine bottle. Great idea for displaying a bottle.

Thanks for all the kind comments. NateX, I can’t think of much to advice except to sharpen your chisels! Another tool I used was a small scorp to hollow out the bottle recess, but a gouge would work equally well. I started with a log that had a slight bend in it. By cutting the base square, the top leaned back giving a nice presentation angle. The rest of the form presented itself along the way.
