My Mom came to visit for a week and after drinking all of my coffee she wanted a coffee scoop like mine. Well, who am I to refuse a woodworking opportunity? Especially when its a request from your Mom. I was happy to accept the job.

I made it out of granadillo wood and the finish is Howard brand butcher block conditioner which is basically mineral oil mixed with beeswax.

The credit for this design goes to Jim Jakosh, thanks Jim!

Measurements:
Inside- 2 1/4” diameter and 2” deep.
Handle length- 1 1/2”
Scoop holds 1/2 cup

Hi – what was the build process? Was this turned, or carved? I love the design.

Jim,

If it’s made the way I made mine, it’s turned on two axis – I like this design much better than mine, though because of the flat bottom – I have to put mine upsidedown to keep it from rolling. :-)

NICE BUILD!!!!

The scoop is turned but you cant turn all of it on the count of that handle spinnin around so you just turn what you can and sand away the rest. It is turned with two axis as well.
