I was wandering thru a local nature area and there was a tree down across the trail. So I broke out my handy dandy folding saw and being the good Samaritan that I am I just had to clear the trail. Needless to say a chunk of the wood came home with me and I got to work on making a cup.
Edit: With the help of some friends. I have discovered this wood is Hop Hornbeam.
You can call it a Kuksa, a Guksi, or a Noggin. Not sure which one it is. Prolly fits more in the noggin category.
I also made this leather travel journal. It is made with latigo leather and plain printer paper folded in half. Bound in the spine with artificial sinew. The tie is yucca 2-strand twist cordage. The cordage is dyed with charcoal powder.
God Bless Yall!
