Hey. Been a while since I posted here. What with one thing and another, but now I've more free time to myself I'm going to try and form some drinking vessels from these two birch burls I was fortunate to acquire. Not sure if the 'birds eye' grain will appear once shaped, but I'm hoping it does. The completed kuksa, seen posing on the burls is from plain birch. Made it for a pal who's had a battle with long c19. Another image has a kupilka in it for scale. I'll post some more images once I get the knives out. Hoping I'll get 2 large ones from the big burl. I don't need another one myself, so may put them up for sale or swaps.
