I've been carving wooden cups or Kuksa for over Twelve Years, and along the way I’ve found out and overcome many associated problems with them. You can find available Kuksas for sale in my PRODUCTS page

After being asked many times how to make them, I thought I would simply write it all down in one convenient place and make it available to the public via a printed BOOK
