I decided to fill up my day making a ladle just for fun yesterday. Since my mom uses coconut milk for her cooking and i have a coconut tree next to my house, i decided to make something out of the coconut shell. decided to make a laddle for my dad so he can use it to water some potted plants. for the handle, i use a scrap 1”x1/2” that i have lying around the house and cut it using the saw from my Swiss army knife. after some rounding of with the knife, i put it in my drill chuck and sand it smooth. The handle was joint together using a wedge from another scrap of dark wood. the coconut flesh was cleaned by grating out most of it and drying the shell inside an oven, and removing the remaining flesh with a spoon.and the husk are cleaned out using a sander with 120 grit paper. i use some spray lacquer for the finish. I think it was a day well spent!
