Wooden Bowl

Last fall, near where my shelter is, there was a crew that came by and trimmed up a large amount of limbs from the power lines. I was very excited to be able to have some good quality wood to work with. I grabbed several large pieces to work on at a later time. Here is my attempt to make a bowl using fire as a main tool for the carving.

I learned that my eye were bigger than my need for the project. I spent hours with a saw and

chisel getting the chuck of wood small enough to work with.

I also made a wooding pipe to be able to focus my breath on the coals. This way I could really get the spots I wanted burnt really hot.
