Hey gang, I hope you may have read through the blog this evening. Here is my first try at creating a Kuksa! Very challenging piece of treenware to take on. I learned a lot of do’s and dont’s for the next go around.
I feel that creating more than just a few spoons at this point provided me with a healthy introduction for setting new tracks in this work. This is like a small bowl meeting a spoon….so a great way to extend ideas and hone new skills.
The traditional Kuksa’s are made from Birch, but in this case I simply used what I had so Black Cherry was on the menu.
Tools used: Hatchet, Scandi Knife, smaller carving knife, spokehave, and pfiel gouge for scooping the bowl shape.
I hope you might enjoy this first try and I look forward to showing more work in the future!
Take care everyone and thanks for taking a look.
