A couple days before Christmas Deb stopped by woodcraft to pick something up for me.
She also brought back an ice cream scoop kit (very nice stainless kit.)
She suggested I make a handle for it from dunnage to give to our daughter in law (that gets the dunnage for me.)
So I grabbed a pre-cut blank for a cane handle and made the one on the bottom.

She like it so much I decided to make one for her.
I had a couple of pieces of laminated colored plywood and decided to make her handle out of that.

Scoops glued to handles with 5 minute epoxy.

Both were sanded to 320 grit and finished with several coats of superglue…my first attempt at using CA for finishing. I LIKE IT!!!

Oh yes. One o my favs is ice cream. These came out super nice. They look like they’re coated with glass. The CA finish always looks so nice. I’ve experimented just a little with it, but, need more experimenting. Any tips about finishing with it is appreciated. :)

Superglue? Whoa. This is something I never heard about. Well, they say you learn something new every day and I guess this is it for me.

Very Nice scoops!
