I made these one afternoon.
I make handles for several things, so I have lots of blanks cut and ready to turn. The one with the pointed handle is an off axis turning. I made the scoop end on axis, then shifted about 1/4 inch in one direction, then 1/4 inch in the other. But I didn’t turn the off axes the same amount so the handle is more flat on one side than the other. As a result is fits very nicely in your palm and give a better grip for twisting the scoop through hard ice cream.
As a side note, there is only one scoop, I keep the handles separate until a customer picks the one they like, then I glue them on with 5 minute epoxy…it keeps the costs down.
The wood is all Indian dontknow, sanded to 320 grit, with at least 2 coats of CA, then buffed with the first stage of the Beall system.
