Made out of sycamore scrap.

These things are becoming addictive but they are fun to make and will make great gifts.

Thanks for the looks/comments.

The problem is, my mind sees how cool these are & then I want to find time to try to make them.

Nice job again.

The addiction comes and goes, I know, I’ve been bitten and recovered after making about 40 or so and and my stockpile is getting low so I may get bitten again sooner or later! They make great gifts and cheap enough to sometimes make a successful show all by themselves! Check my posts for my coffee scoops! I like the handle on this spoon.

Nice piece of scrap! I like the handle and also the ‘scar’ in the bowl. Nice work!

I thought the addicted title was relating to the look of a failed attempt to heat up black tar heroin in the spoon :)

Nice work, looks like a good way to use up scraps. Is the handle shape random or are you following the grain?

bowtie, the handle shape is just random. I sketch the handle on the blank with a pencil, cut it out roughly on the bandsaw, use a belt sander to shape it and then hand sand to get final form.

Jaykaypur, I would very highly recommend that you get some of these and they will eliminate 95% of the hand sanding. The only place I have to hand sand is inside the scoop.

I have some asssorted sized/grit flap wheels but will definitely look to get some of these. They look like they will really do the job. Thanks.

Thank you for the post and I can see where it would be fun to just carve away without a pattern, just follow the grain and let it take shape .

Hi Jay, Thats quite the collection your building, my wife just asked me where are hers? Guess I will be learning how to make these pretty soon. Nicely done.
