  • Kuska attempt

    My first try at a Kuska. Had a few Cherry logs, about 16 inches in diameter, split one into quarters. Some cuts on the bandsaw for shape. The rest was hand work. Used the suggested Beeswax, Mineral oil finish.
    The piece of cherry it sits on is the outer part of the log.

    I'm ignorant when it comes to a Kuska bowl but the one you did looks nice and has a sharp looking finish.

        I just love cherry, it's one of my most favorite wood species. Nice job for a first attempt.

          I do like that wood and that finish which I've never used before. Applied hot, maybe?
          How big is the kuksa? You've made a very nice result.

              Melted the Beeswax in glass jar, mixed in mineral oil, about same amounts, let it cool turns into a paste, rub in with cloth, did 4 coats, dry buff in between Its for the Granddaughter, shes a Camper, Whitewater rafting guide, generally used for hot beverage.

                    Nice first one. I use the same finish on mine. Try boiling in salted water to make the coffee taste good and then finish.
