Maple Scoop

This is a 1/2 cup scoop thatIi now use for my Oatmeal every morning. I have been wanting to try to make a scoop without much carving so I laid out this old piece of maple that they were throwing away at Kamp lumber because it cracked in half. I rough sawed it and then glued on a spigot to hold it to turn the handle. I also glued on a a scab piece of wood so it would not run too off balanced .
After the handle was complete, I cut off the extra wood and glued another spigot on the bottom to hold it for boring the inside and turning some of the outside. I had to be real careful of the handle spinning close to my cutting tools and fingers!!

I finished with a little sanding to blend in the area where the handle joins the round body.
It is finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.

Hi Jim, this is a lovely project and I did wonder how you turned it with the handle spinning. You’re brave..lol

Thanks for sharing your knowledge Jim, it is always interesting to see how it is done.
