Well I decided to take a break from starting another kuksa. I have 3 works in progress, so I need to start something else to keep me inspired. I wanted to try carving a wooden bowl for the first time. I got the idea because I get sick of these ugly/soulless/factory made dog bowls and my Grae dog deserves a something nice to look at while she eats.

I ended up doing this inside since the rain and ice were blowing sideways outside. Didn’t feel like spending all my daylight preparing a hot fire and drying off my seating area when I had more important things to tend to. Like swinging some swedish and finnish steel!

I filmed everything just after splitting, and the battery died right before I was ready to hit it with the knife.
