Awesome He Transforms This Piece Of Log Into A Vikings Artefact Every Man Must Have!


The complete procedure is a more comprehensive one and as you will find out, the devil is in the details. But one thing I can promise you is you’d love the outcome of this craft.

Step 1: Get A Piece of Log And Split It

First you’ll have to gather some wood.¬†Choose straith-grained species – I got a piece of elderberry (not because elderberry is THE mug species, just because I got a piece left). Any straith- or spiral grained species will do the job, no worries.

You’ll need a log with a diameter about the size of your hand so don’t sight too small.¬†Use a hatchet to cut it down (or cheat like me, use a saw – first penalty point).

split into 8 equal parts (

Aim is to hollow it out.

Draw the cutting-lines on the top of the log (to get equal parts) & split it in 8 with a hatchet – see why you need that straith-grained wood?

Once you’ve got those 8 parts you’ll cut off their tips, leaving just 15 to 20mm (half inch) from the side.
While hatching the log your cut respects the grain of the wood & you’ll obtain a perfect contact between every piece.

Let it all dry in a well ventilated area.
