Hand carved birch bowls

Carved these for from birch branches. Again just with a couple of scoop chisels, a spoke-shave, and a hand-plane for the bottom. Carved them green, and then slowly dried them over the course of a month.

My favorite is the long, flat one with all the figuring. Basically peeled the bark off and sanded it to leave as much character as possible.

All finished with danish oil.

Very nice. My favourite is the longest one.
Reminds me of a stone-age, hollowed out log / canoe. Your ancestors would be proud, lol.

Cool and pretty bowls! Looks like little canoes and the wood has very nice grains and figures. Great work!

Have your say...
