These are a couple scoops I made from my fire red slab of box elder. Originally it was going to be one but there was enough wood for two while using some scrap for the counterweight . The last shot is how they were when they started.

They are 3” ID and 1.53” deep and finished with Watco Butcher Block finish.

Here are the steps I use in making one :

I guess I did 2 blogs on this!

Cheers, Jim

Hi Jim…Nice Scoops. Lovely shapes and By Gee that Box Elder is absolutely beautiful.

Even in that last shot with the wood in block form that nice red colour is peeping through.

Great project Jim. Good Night. I am off to bed, it’s nearly 10-30pm here.

Regards,

Cliff.

Really nice Jim, you sure have mastered the scoop making. Like the way the grain of the wood runs.

The wood and projects are beautiful. Followed your blog entry and enjoyed studying the process. I also discovered that you have many more blogs. When I am able will go through them and I am sure there is allot to learn from a master craftsman. I haven’t done looking and of course making blogs as I have limited internet access. The lathe blog I did where there was wifi. Thanks for the excelant presentation.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Glad you like them. I’ll use both of them when I’m baking!! My muffin recipe calls for many items in 3/4 cup measure and now I can hit it right on the nose each time. They shuld work for dry and liquid measure, too.

I love to learn new thing and share what I learn. I think it makes everyone’s woodworking experience much fuller with all that can be done. When I go to our turning guild meeting I am blown away by what Ron Campbell and others can do with wood on the lathe.

I can’t wait to show you all the process I learned on Friday at the flea market. As soon as I get the equipment I ordered, I’ll post a video on the process!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers, Jim
