First of all: I am pretty bad in English :)

>> It wasn't planned to put my little project online, so forgive also the bad pictures.

This is for inspiration:

Some Details:
Wood: Birch (no burl)
KuksaGuksi (or Finnish: kuksa; Swedish: kåsa) is a type of drinking cup traditionally duodji crafted by the Sami people of northern Scandinavia from carved birch burl.
Tools used: Mora 162, Mora Clipper, Gransfors Bruks Trapper, Marttiini carving knive, Sandpapper, Line Oil(not the best choise), NO POWER MACHINES!!
I agree with Kiteman. Don't worry about the English grammar.The way you carve, the pictures do most of the talking and the final product seals the deal. You just need to fill in the details. How fine a grade of sandpaper do you use. What did you use to finish it, oil or wax, etc.?

The pictures are fine, but they would be easier to follow if you created a step-by-step instructable.
