Default Sleipnir’s Tine

Some of you here on the forum know I am a Norwegian tine maker. A tine (pronounced tina) is a bent wood box. They have been made in Nordic countries for over 800 years.

Here on the forum Jim Finn, Gloria (Wood Dog) and I have posted our tiner (plural for tine).

Jim and I have posted a tutorial on tine making, And Gloria is our star student.

I wanted to post and talk about the latest tine out of my shop. It is made using Siberian birch bark for sides. This bark is much thicker than the bark found here in the US. It is fun to work with, but has a mind of it’s own. You soak it in warm water to form it.

I get my birch bark from: http://www.barkcanoe.com/materials.htm . John has a lot of birch bark products, I use 2’ X 2’ sheets cost $8.75.

Traditionally the side of the bark next to the tree was turned to the outside of the tine. I have found my customers prefer the white side of the bark out.

This tine has hard maple latching posts and the lid and bottom are made from reclaimed 75 year old Idaho white pine.

The Sleipnir silhouette is cut from 3/16” cherry.

Sleipnir is Odin’s eight legged horse.

This eight legged steed crosses eight points of the
compass, from eight directions into eight
dimensions.
He is the bringer of the valiant dead from the
battlefield to Valhalla”

“Carry we who die in battle
Over land and sea
Across the rainbow bridge
To Valhalla
Odin's waiting for me”
(lyrics by Manowar)
 
This has been one of the fastest selling tine I have ever made. It was in my Etsy shop 1 hour and 15 minutes before it sold.

Hope you will give tine making a try.

Dave

Dave all I did to post the link was search for the thread (helps when you remember the thread name) Get to the thread, copy the address in the address bar then pasted it in my reply. Hope this helps.
