This is a scoop I made while doing this blog ( http://lumberjocks.com/Slovenian/blog/60698 ) to explain the process I use. These are good to leave in the oatmeal container for ready use each day.

This one is made from a Juniper log and finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.

Well done Jim, love your very detailed blog which might spur a few guys who may be a bit scared to have a go at this type of turning. Real nice piece of timber to set it of

Very nicely done with great flowing lines—a definite keeper.

Thanks Pete, John and Candy!
I had to fill the pith with epoxy, but I do that a lot with cracks. Seem like some of the prettiest wood has cracks in it when i get it on the lathe!! I’m finishing a piece I turned wet and the bottom has 3 big cracks in it from drying. Out comes the epoxy!!

Cheers, Jim

Great job Jim.
Thanks for sharing this and the blog.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The juniper I have milled had a VERY strong odor; I have to imagine yours is old and the odor has disappated, yes. I love your stuff this scoop is no exception.

Thanks for all the nice comments. You all have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
keep the chips flying!!

Hi Jack. This did not have much odor or my smeller is not working so good any more. I’ve had this log in the wood room for over 3 years. I kept moving it from place to place…..not any more!! It was just the right cross section for the scoop block.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks, Mike. I made a lot of scoops this way. This is first time I made a real drawing that I can refer to for making some more.

Have a great Sunday! It is Beautiful here and I just heard this to start my day!!!!!!
