    I'm stingy with wood and just hated for the piece to be used for kindling. I salvage/use everything I can from every piece I cut.

    I have 3 cherry Carve-A-Kuksa available.

    Left to right 12oz. - 6oz. - 4oz.

    These three are discounted even further than normal because all three are from less than top notch blanks. They have some minor natural defects that I'll highlight in the photos below.

    12oz. $30 - Includes free shipping in the states - PayPal Only Please. SOLD

    6oz. $25 - Includes free shipping in the states - PayPal Only Please. SOLD

    4oz. $20 - Includes free shipping in the states - PayPal Only Please. SOLD

    Detail shots of the check in the rim of the 6oz. that's filled with CA. It's very short but it's there.

    Detail shots of the spalting (it's only on one side and the back) in the 12oz. Any soft areas have been stabilized from the outside with CA.

    Thanks,

    Beautiful work. Are there plans to have more finished kuksas available? I see the two on the last page. I’m thinking I’d like something bigger than 4oz for sure. Hard to guage size.

    Thanks!
    Jason

    Thanks for the interest Jason. I harvested a fresh supply of logs about a month ago and have been working to get some of it milled up, so yes sir I'll have some finished ones available.

    Just giving the outside a tooled finish with a knife or sanded if you prefer a smooth outside and another coat or two of tung oil. They're probably 98% finished and could actually be used just as they are.

    You might like to check out this thread for some size/capacity comparisons photos with measurments. I started it in the hopes it would help folks decide what they wanted regardless of whether they're buying from me, someone else or making their own.

    Looking for a bigger kuksa to carve, say 12 oz plus, 16 would be better.
    Have anything kicking around?

    I don't have anything already milled big enough to get one that big but I'd be glad to mill ya one bro.

    It's about to get cool enough hopefully to be able to start milling some logs and I've got a bunch that needs to be done.

    ETA: I might have some already milled that would get a 12oz but not a 16oz.

    16oz would be a WHOPPER of a kuksa. I'd say close to 5-1/2" OD x 3" or so tall.

    Sorry brother I'm not sure what you mean by Highball?

    I've got several blanks ready to go that will make a 4oz or larger kuksa.

    it took me years to figure out why someone would want a 1/4 scale iced tea glass that they don't even fill up halfway......

    I feel silly for not knowing what it was. :8: In my defense though... I've been in a bar/club less than a half dozen times in my life and when I did go it was to hear the band that was playing, not to drink. It's just never been my thing. Not that I have anything against drinking and I do every once in a blue moon enjoy a mixed drink before bed. Or a shot of whisky to help clear the throat when I'm sick.

    we keep a bottle of Evan Williams American Honey whiskey in the fridge to use as cough syrup.
    heat a shot up 10 seconds in the microwave and toss it back -- clears all the crud out of the back of your throat and soothes it on the way down.
    takes us about 6 years to go through a bottle....

    Here's the 16oz Big Boy Carve-A-Kuksa I made for @Broke that's going out today. I posted photos of it in my "In The Shop At TCOG" thread but thought it would be a good idea to share one here as well. At 4-3/8" x 3" she's a whopper. :dblthumb:

    I have plenty of fresh birch kuksa blanks milled up to make kuksas from if anyone is interested in one of these.

    I have this nice 10oz Cherry Carve-A-Kuksa available if anyone is interested. Finished on the inside... do a little carving on the outside to personalize and make it yours but save yourself 90% of the work of starting a kuksa from scratch.

    Thanks Hal! This one is a 10oz.

    I'll keep in mind that you'd like to have a 16 oz. I just gotta get caught up on some orders then I'll be free to play. :dblthumb:

    I have this one from spalted Birch available guys. Very nice coloring in this one.

    12.5 oz wet sanded (with Tung Oil) to 600 grit on the inside which makes this one about 99.9 percent finished and one heck of a deal for a Carve-A-Kuksa.

    Thanks guys! I don't have any already made but I'd be happy to make you one, just shoot me a PM and let me know what species of wood and what size you'd like.

    @HalM my appologies bud! I normally keep a wait list for what folks would like to have and somehow I missed adding you interested in a 16oz one to the list. I was reviewing past posts to see if I had missed anything when I caught my mistake. If you'd still like to have one I'll put you at the top of the list and give you a discount for my mistake.

    You can add me to the bottom of the list for a 12-16 Oz model as well, please!
