Elbow adze/Scorp/spokeshave


The initial hollowing with the elbow adze would probaly have been faster if it had a lipped or curved blade rather than a straight one. I am seriously considering buying such an adze blade from North Bay forge or from Kestrel tools.


Unconventional use of carving tools to create a kuksa form. Elbow adze, scorp, flat sweep gouge and tiny spokeshave. The axe work took around 20 minutes, and I spent less  than an hour hollowing and  refining the outside shape. This would have taken days probaly using a spoon knife on its own as this is quite a large cup…. I intend to try doing some incised decoration to the rim on this kuksa.
