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. http://simonhillgreenwoodwork.blogspot.com/2011/02/alder-spoon-and-kuksa-so-far.html 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.
