This one of those quick one hour or so labor projects… made the zebrawood ice cream scoop yesterday evening after work and the walnut tonight. Only used 4 tools … drill press, band saw, belt sander and oscillating spindle sander.
Handles are made from 6 inch long 7/4 offcuts …. one from zebrawood and the other Martin Luther King Tennesse Black Walnut.
Shapes of the handles came from a small french curve … what ever looked good etc.
Sanded to 220 .
Finish is right out of the can Rustolium spray lacquer. Bought from Walmart… three coats
Got the chrome plated scoops for a buck a piece from Mendelson’s …in Dayton Ohio .. an awesome place to shop …world largest salvage/junk/surplus/ hardware store. Millions of square feet…..
The knob on my bedroom fan broke and I went there looking for a replacement knob ... on the third floor there were litterly a million knobs to choose from … bins and bins of them … some new, some old … from TV’s to lab instruments. I paid 50 cents for the knob.
The store is huge, one of those places where you can find anything …. from carpet to pumps, from radio tubes to refrigerators, three stories in a big old warehouse in downtown Dayton. In a room on the first floor I bought a dozen army surplus t-shirts for my son at a buck each. Next to the shirts I found a bin with the ice cream scoops without handles … and you know the rest of the story …
below is link about Mendleson’s … they also have a webstore and sell stuff on ebay.
