All you need to carve a cup.
Whats in the box:
- 1 x Fresh Greenwood Birch blank cut to shape
- 1 x Mora 106 carving knife
- 1 x Mora 164 spoon knife
- Cup oil
- 1 x A4 Instructions
A cup blank cut to a shape, pre-shaped with an axe and the centre drilled out plus a finger hole. It also has a centred circular base drawn in. To save some time and your muscles these blanks have been drilled out with a large drill bit to give you a good start so you will have the inside hollowed out in no time. The finger hole has been pre-drilled to make the handle as in a traditional Scottish Highlands cup.
Please note all the blanks are cut out by hand and will vary in shape and size slightly depending on the log it comes from. I check every blank and only send out ones i would use personally. So it is down to you to make a beautiful cup from your unique blank. If there are any defects in the wood then it is up to you to get creative and work with it. When not using your blank keep it in a bag away from any heat sources or it will dry too quickly and split. Try and avoid carving in hot sunlight for the same reasons.
I have a few videos on youtube which will show you a step by step guide of how to make a Highlands Cup. Once you have made your cup, let the wood dry and do any finishing cuts before oiling it to waterproof it.
