Offgrid Living on the Big Island of Hawaii - Hand Carved Shoyu Dish out of Ohia Wood

in #diylast month


I found this small off cut of an Ohia log and I decided to make another Shoyu / Sauce dish.

It is so hard to carve these small things with the tools that I have.

I used my electric grinder to get the rough shape. Then I used the Belt Sander and then smoothed out the scratches with the Orbital and small Disc Sander.

Then it was all wet sanding my hand.

It took me a while to do it but it was fun and it came out OK.


Hi @hawaiialoha
Do you know about the Daily Diary Game?
It involves a daily post about your day with a very good chance of big upvotes from @steemcurator01 with over 3 million SteemPower. I live in a Hawaii and I would like to organize a team of people to post daily in this game. You would make much more then you do now. I am sure with your pictures you could talk a little bit about your day for your posts. You seem to post often.

Here are the rules from @steemitblog

Diary Game Rules 08/12/2020

The First Rule of The Diary Game is READ THE RULES OF THE DIARY GAME!

  • Diary Game posts must be about your daily life activities. They should not just be your favorite recipes, stories of your vacation last year, film reviews, retelling of your dreams, political rants...
  • The title of Diary Game posts must be in the format - THE DIARY GAME : DATE (including day, month & year) : ANY OTHER WORDS YOU WANT TO INCLUDE
  • Diary Game posts must include #thediarygame tag as one of the first five tags - ideally the first one.
  • Diary Game posts must also include a # tag to identify your country.
  • Diary Game posts can be written in any language. We use Google Translate and DeepL Translator to translate so if you include important information in graphics you should include a transcription in text.
  • Diary Game posts must be a minimum of 300 words - excluding any introduction or conclusion (for example thanks to Steemit etc) that is not directly part of the diary post.
  • Diary Game posts should not include referral links especially to any crypto or financial sites or products.
  • Diary Game posts should include no more than 8 photographs. Photographs should be presented individually not as compilation photos as they are too small to be useful. Screencaptures of games or films count as part of the 8 photos.
  • You can only make one Diary Game post for each day of your life. If you are not able to post on one day, you can put two posts up on the next day as long as they cover the events of different days, and are dated to show that.
  • Any images used in a Diary Game post must be your own or from a stated copyright free source.

These Rules above are obligatory. If you fail to follow these rules you risk missing out on votes and points for your post.
We reserve the right to add to or amend the rules as the game progresses. Please follow @steemitblog for news of any updates.
