moxiepurple I tried a new craft & I'm amazed it doesn't look like complete shit! I'm not done yet though, haha. Carving a basswood square dowel with Xacto knives. I thought a Mario Question Block would be an easy first project. Inspired by @jimmydiresta after watching him carve a bar top for Dickle whiskey. #carving #whittling #diy #xacto #xactoknife 3h

chrismount_ Spoon 13 of 52 - The 'Looks Like a Leaf' Scoop in Silver Birch Heart Wood

This is birch heart wood, not aspen as I thought so in some previous spoons. Heart wood is the lower portion of the tree - the oldest and hardest part. Often looks quite different to other sections of the tree, and in Silver birch it has a lovely shimmer to it. Usually tough stuff to carve, but after working on the kuksa for several weeks this felt like butter (well, almost). Tried the furrowed effect on the inside of the spoon again. It's the perfect size for holding a lemon, pretty handy I know.

  •   craftlabknives Great stuff, glad you are having fun with the tools. Carving is such good therapy, sometimes just making shavings is all you need. glad @tomkrein helped you and gave you some of our tools to try out. If you need anything else even advice just let us know. cheers Ben 23h
  •   tbuzz54 Make me some of these for my new house. Walleye' maybe 16h
  •   madsterful @tbuzz54 I'm gonna have to come out there to do my research. It's the only way. @craftlabknives thanks so much, Ben! It's my favorite knife, and makes carving that much more enjoyable (that, and a little good whisky). I can't wait to order more. I'm embarking on spoons soon, and I'm sure I'll need plenty of advice : ) 14h
  •   burnleyknives @madsterful in for lake research 12h
  •   craftlabknives Great glad you like it. Sure if you need any help with spoons just let me know. If you drop me a email I can send some links to you that may help. cheers Ben info@benandloisorford.com 7h

chrismount_ Kuksa progress... Happy with how she's turning out but wanted to take a photo now because there's a suspicious crack forming on the side I had planned on christening this cup on next week's skiing expedition but will let it dry slowly in a cool place whilst I'm away and see what happens.

Was tough sanding it to its current stage and there's still soo much to do. Hopefully she'll make it through without cracking.

mightyev From design on paper to roughed out form. Now I just need to hollow out the knots and add the finer detail and finishes!
