Don’t mind the hole in the scoop this piece is for reference only
after we have the general shape that we want I took it over to the drill press and bored a 5/8ths inch hole to my desired depth
Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, was just trying to get the best shot of the hole.
The plan calls for a 1/4 inch #5 spoon gouge to carve the hole. (I don’t have one yet, so I used my dremel)
This is where I should have left it alone and sanded it, but I wanted this to look good so I went a little too far and the hole in the first picture is what happened. I am thinking of putting some filler on it and continue with it. Does anyone know if wood filler is ok for this?
Tune in Next time for the completion
