I did a couple of Ice cream scoop handles this afternoon.
The second one took 30 minutes from grabbing the blank to ready to glue on the scoop.
Here’s a quick photo log of the action (all times in Military format).
1. 1630, grabbed the blank and put it in the drill press to drill the hole for the scoop.
2. 1637, blank rounded.
3. 1639, tenon turned.
4. 1644, rough shaping done.
5. 1645, start sanding…80, 120, 180, 220, 320 grit.
6. 1648, finish sanding.
7. 1650, final turning on tenon.
8. 1654, CA finish applied.
9. 1704, Dismounted the handle, cut the end off, used disk sander to rough finish the end, then a 320 grit sanding mop to smooth it. Applied a little CA to the sanded end, sanded the tenon to length, and polished the handle with the Beall system.
