My first try at Kuksa Carving

I've been meaning to give carving A Kuksa A try for ages and thanks to the inspiration and information found on Jon mac's Blog, Spoon Carving First Steps I finally got round to giving it A go. Jon lives and works on Dartmoor in Devon and presents Spoon and Kuksa carving from a Bushcraft perspective, working with basic tools namely the Axe, Knife and Hook Knife using green wood. It's A great blog with A wealth of information and A great read so if your interested in green wood carving be sure to check it out.

At any rate, my first try was carved from green Elm wood and it has A tooled finish meaning no sandpaper just A million or so micro cuts with the knife to achieve as smooth and even A finish as possible. It was most enjoyable to carve and I'm sure it is but the first of many to come.

Enjoy :-)

Mini Trencher/Dough Bowl

I've been wanting to carve A Trencher/ Dough Bowl for A long time but never have large enough timber on hand. Then one day I had an epiphany of sorts, why not carve some miniatures, I almost always have some beautiful tiny pieces of wood in my scrap drawer. So long story short here's the first carved from Lilac wood.
