    There's no time limit, sourcing the tools and materials is part of the fun. things can be swapped and borrowed.

    i agree with you there, if you dont have the correct tools for the job, then thats when smart thinking and being able to improv will help, thats what good bushcraft is all about, after all we made bows with tools made out of stone. so what ever the job is you may need to make a the tool for the job.

    ok what started well has ended up in a mess. davebromley gave me the challenge to make a kuksa, the first one i ever made was great but this one has been driving me crazy. the wood was way to soft and wet to work with, i should have gave up and started on better wood from the start, but i was so eager to make it work, after half way of making the kuksa i tried drying it by the fire but ended up burning it a little. so here you go a kuksa cross spoon type of thing and yes im sending it to you dave to horror you forever hahahaha so pm me your adress it going in the post.

    looks pretty good to me, if it holds liquid it's perfect as a kuska IMHO. must get my finger out and get on with my challenge

    I agree, It's nice to see the first one posted. I'm still trying to get some time off work to start mine. Got all of the plans and ideas in my head.

    right then, my challange was to carve a leaf from the wood of the tree the leaf came from, so an oak leaf from oak, etc...

    i chose cherry as its all i have ATM, it came out ok but looks more like a hornbeam leaf than a cherry.... ah well, will have to have another go when i get time..

    here are the pooooooor pic's i have taken...







    and one with the scrap...




    and the scrap on its own...

    bit of a sore thumb now, all i used was my mora but enjoyed it, dont even know how long it has taken..

    thanks Jackcbr...

    Lol, now I'm interested in what you think it is. Enjoying whittling in the evenings though, nice and therapeutic.

    Nice work with the leaf mate. If that's your first attempt, your next will be knockout.
