Cherry and spalted maple Coffee scoops for Christmas gifts.
These are based on an article by Phil Manzi ( http://tidewaterturners.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/coffee_scoops_phil_manzi.pdf ). I used construction grade lumber to make the fixture. I got a nice tight jam fit, but added turner’s tape to the bottom for a little extra security.
To get the volume of the scoop right (needs to be 1 tablespoon), I got a tablespoon full of walnut shells and did a couple of tests while hollowing.
