    My nephew asked me to make him a spoon and Kuksa the other weekend after seeing the ones around the kitchen. I got hold of some Alder a few days later from a job so I thought that I would use that.

    some pics of the work in progress on my blog.
    He wanted a spoon from the kitchen that I made a while ago instead so of the one I made for him, which is cool.

    Also made from Alder.
    He hasn't seen the Kuksa yet, I can't wait to see his face when he does, I hope he likes it.

    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice work. I love Alder, especially as it goes orange when first cut. Lucky lad your nephew.
