This is the second coffee scoop I made and I took some pictures of the process that I added below.
It is s bit less than 1/3 cup and finished with mineral oil. It is some kind of spalted wood I found on the firewood pile.
I laid out this one out of one log. I turn the bottom tenon to use to bore it out and turn the outer diameter of the scoop bottom so that I have a target to hit when I turn the handle in the next operation.
Then there is this one- the mesquite scoop that almost did not make it. First of all I turned the handle too deep past the bottom diameter.Then the handle broke and I glued it and finished it.Tthere was a little crack that proved to be fatal when i put in on the jam chuck to finish off the bottom. It broke in two and I had the tenon turned off so I sanded it to the final shape. I don’t like to scrap anything I’ve turned.
