Never made spoons before or a scoop for that matter. So please be kind with any comments
Don’t know what happened to the rest of explanation it vanished like some evil sorcerer put a spell on the story! What you don’t believe me!
Well here goes…The curved handled spoon was my first. It was made from a scrap piece of vertical grained Douglas Fir I had left over from building a door which is installed between the kitchen renovation and the garage. The spoon was rough cut with the bandsaw and I used a round burr to hog out the spoon bowl. I used a spokeshave, rasp, oscillating sander and regular sand paper to finish shaping it. Finished it up with 3 coats of virgin olive oil.
The other 3 spoons were made from 2×2x9” cherrywood as was the scoop.. They were turned on my mini lathe and the bowls were rough shaped with the bandsaw. The bowls (spoon bowls) were again hogged out with the round burr and hand sanded to smooth it all round. I used Tung Oil to bring out the cherry and will finish in olive oil.
The scoop was similarly made on the lathe. Then I bored out a hole in the center with my Forstner bit (I used an 1 1/4” bit). Then shaped the scoop on the bandsaw. Sanded and Tung Oil for the finish. I had to make a couple of “V” grooved jigs to hold the piece while I bored the hole with my bench top drill press.
The thing on the far right was to be a coffee grounds scoop, now it holds a Harbor Freight giveaway LED flashlight. What, doesn’t everyone have one of those?
