Kuksas and Spoons

After a few weeks of drying and a few weeks for the finish to cure I finally have a couple of kuksas finished. I so enjoyed making these and can already tell its going to be addictive. Carving walnut green feels peeling a potato as the shavings readily come off the tip of my knife. Carving a kuksa is a long process but an enjoyable one and I cant wait to carve the next batch.

Here’s some photos of what I have been working on. More at www.etsy.com/shop/wilderwoodworking

  1. I checked out your Etsy shop and your work looks great! What species of wood do you like to work with best? I used to carve a bit and mostly used basswood because it carved so nice. But, I always felt like it lacked character since the grain was virtually non existent.
