Got some Kuksas in the works this one in cherry. I finished the rough carving and I covered it in its own shavings to slow the drying process. Later I will use these same shavings as packing material for shipping.
So many things these days are needlessly complex. We use power plants, microchips, strip mining, genetic manipulation, oil refineries, High frequency radiation and even a magnetron just to make a bag of popcorn. Its a welcome relief to have some things be this simple.
