There are all kinds of scoops on here, I think Alongiron
and I May have came across the same article Elegant Coffee Scoops
These were turned on a face plate, Someday I will have a Chuck. Fun little project to practice some thin wall turning, great item for those Coffee Connoisseurs. They hold just over 2 tablespoons of your favorite Beans!
Woods: Teak, Mahogany, Black Walnut, Maple, Oak.—Finish: Mineral oil & Beeswax.

Thanks for Looking!

NICE Nick,
At first photo I thought you’d turned a ring you put over the scoop bowl.
Did you use epoxy to glue the pieces together?

Nick; they are so unique. By gluing the two different wood types is a great idea.
