Making a Kuksa.
I have made a few Kuksa's in the past as I enjoy making them, most have gone to family and friends as gifts.
Above is a Kuksa I made recently, it is a type of drinking cup made by the Sami people of northern Scandinavia. Its made out of Willow from a job at work, I used an axe, knife and spoon knife, I added some Kolrosing to the handle for decoration, I used coffee for the Kolrosing and the Kuksa is finished with Linseed oil.
