I finally got around to making my first coffee scoop then another and another and yet another! Before I knew it, I have a collection of over 30 of them and none of them are identical! They are addictive once you start making them. The scoops are pretty similar but not the handles. I find it boring if they are the same and I lose interest in making them. I had 10 ready for the crafts show we attended May 7th, and they garnered quite a bit of interest so it encouraged me to make more. So far I have used Cherry, Hickory, Pear(not bradford), Orange. They are finished with Beeswax. My favorite one was the one with the dogleg in picture 3 and it was the first one sold!
I started carving them out by hand and it took too long so I got my half round router bit and mounted it in my drill press then band sawed the excess away then went to work sanding them down on my 6” belt sander and it made the work go quicker. Each scoop holds about 5 teaspoons of coffee grounds. Did I say they were addictive?
