Inspired by Lj ratchet’s project originally from a great tutorial from Mike Peace. Ratchet has a link in his post to it, I could not get the link working here. Maple, padauk and cocobolo. Fun little project for my mum. Intended for a coffee scoop to hold 2 tbsp.

Later while burnishing the rim after hollowing it took a couple tries to get it right. I lost a little bit off the top of the scoop. Also while fitting the tenon, it cracked apart when I was re-chucking the handle in the lathe. Lost some nice detail and length there too. I think it came out ok in-spite of accidents.

Thanks for looking:)
