I saw a couple of dare-devils turning a one-piece scoop online and decided to give it a whirl.
WARNING: This is NOT for the faint-of-heart! The process requires some “innovative” turning methods that are not recommended for everyone. I’ll let whomever is interested in learning this look up the instructions on YouTube by themselves.
This is a single piece of cherry – the handle is not separate.
I just got finished applying the bees-wax finish to this pretty little thing about an hour ago and decided to take a few pics and post it as I haven’t done a lot of wood-turning and am quite proud of this. :-)
I purposely offset the handle at an angle to allow the scoop to sit upside down on our counter so as not to collect dust in between uses.
The scoop holds just a tad under 1/3 of a cup of coffee beans – a perfect amount for our french press coffee maker.
Sure looks a lot better than the old aluminum measuring cup we were using!
And my entire wood shop now smells like coffee and cherry – Bonus!
I think I might wind up liking this wood-turning thing…................
