This was a Christmas gift to a befriended family of mine. It took me over half a year to come up with a useful purpose for a nice hard peace of oak that I had laying around in my house. It eventually made its way to become the object it is today.

What you will need

Oak (preferably seasoned)

Hay Yarn

Woodcarving Knive (Morakniv)

Sandpaper

Hand-drill

Axe (Hultafors)

How to do this project

1

Choose Wood

2

Draw rough cut

3

ough cut, to leave room for carving)

Use axe to form basic shape (chop till approximately one inch before your rough cut, to leave room for carving)

4

Carve basic form

5

Now start sanding; Move from a rough sanding paper toward a finer paper. You may sand down as much wood as you like. I prefer to leave my projects a bit "unperfect".

6

Drill a hole into top part of the handle

7

h a "Clove Hitch"

Now start wrapping your yarn tidly around the handle and secure the end with a "Clove Hitch"
