Birch Shrink pots made from local silver birch.The birch branch is hollowed out, a groove is made 5mm from the base and a hardwood seasoned base is shaped so it will fit the base groove.Allow to dry and the pot will shrink onto the base.Lids can be added.Will be adding more photos of this process.Used by the Vikings and still in use in Eastern Europe today.They are air tight and can be made water tight.Sustainable wooden storage pots.No glue,screws or nails.
