    I'm sure it could but the cost of a chunk of Osage big enough to make a kuksa from would likely have an astronomical price tag. :dblthumb:

    Oh if you have access to osage that you can harvest that would be great.
    Depends on the size kuksa you wanted but I usually rough mine out to approx 4-1/2 to 5"H x 5"W x 6"L.
    Some extra length would be advisable though especially since it's going to be shipped and may go through some temp extremes (for green wood at least) on the way.

    SOLD
    Maple Carve-A-Kuksa available, this one is 12+ oz to the rim and the inside has been sanded to 220 grit to make finishing much easier for the purchaser. Hand sanding the inside of a kuksa is no fun at all but it's much easier to do by hand while on the lathe than it is having to hold the kuksa in one hand and sand with the other. I put a very light coat of tung oil on it to make the grain show up for the photos and to help hold the moisture in (keep the wood fresh/green) until it's carved. This doesn't affect the carving in any way, I've done it many times on my own carvings.

    $45 - Includes Free Shipping In The States - PayPal Only Please

    Thank you sir! It gives folks that would like to carve themselves a kuksa a huge head start and pretty much guarantees success on their first attempt.

    Carve-A-Kuksa Available.

    $45 - Free Shipping in the states - PayPal Only Please

    This really nice kuksa is from maple and holds approx. 12oz to the rim.

    This one has been sanded to 220 grit on the inside to remove any tool marks and it has had a light coat of Tung Oil applied to the outside to help hold the moisture in (helps it dry more slowly) and keep the wood fresh until the carving is finished. This one is really fresh/green so it should be easy carving.

    Thanks for taking a look!
    Tim

    Bought a blank from T. Pollock during thanksgiving for a little project to do on the side. It was incredibly fun and I would highly recommend others give it shot. Thanks again . Great idea

    @tyivie you should show that over in the carve clan sub forum, I know they'd love to see it.

    Did you use a wood burner for the design? Super nice however you did it brother!

    Awesome! I just started doing a little woodburning but I don't have an artistic bone in my body to be able to do anything like what you did on that kuksa. :dblthumb:
