Watering Vessel

The swan-inspired look of this beautiful project makes it just as much a work of art as it is practical.

Organic shapes aren‘t always common in woodworking. Most tools are better suited to cutting straight lines and square corners, but this wooden watering vessel defies expectations in more ways than one. The shape of this project was inspired by the swan carvings done by our designer‘s grandfather. The swooping curves of the vessel are designed to evoke the look of such carvings. Templates and a router do a lot of the work here. They‘re used to create the interior channel and the stepped basin on two halves of the vessel. The halves are then glued together, and another template is used to form the rough profile of the exterior.
