  • Ogre flask

    I was invited to make a flask for a pubic exhibition in Duluth, Minnesota. This is carved in butternut and walnut and has a 450 ml food grade plastic bottle interior. It is 11" long at the longest dimension and 7" at the ribs to the top of the handle.

    Great design and craft. Thanks for all the process pictures to show how the bulk glue-up was done.

                I need one of those as it is on my bucket list to kiss an ogre. Terrific creation! And I like all those photos too.

                    Wow! Well done, Clayton! Is the bottle inserted through the base, or did you hollow the interior to fit it before glue-up?

                          Thank you! The bottle is one that I purposely picked for its shape. It is not round (shaped like a slab) and the most narrow dimension makes it only about 1.5" thick. I basically just built a wooden box around it and was careful to fit the neck tightly. Then I put sealant around the neck so that liquid would not run down between the wood and bottle.

                          I was happy once I was done carving that I had not accidentally gone through anywhere and put a hole in the bottle.

                          The exhibition that I am putting this in can take up to three flasks per person. I think I will try making at least one more, but likely a bit less involved.

                            And here is the second, which I call the bootlegger. I am pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. It has a stainless steel internal container this time, and the method was a bit different. I hollowed out the back in order to make room for the container, rather than glue pieces of wood around it.

                            It is 10" tall, 5" wide and 7" deep.
