Yet another Coffee Scoop

I’m still trying to perfect the Coffee Scoop. This one is Tiger Maple and Padauk. The scoop is 1 1/2” wide and 2 1/2” deep, a rather large coffee scoop. Finish is Mylands friction polish (3 coats). One problem I noted was that the Padauk tends to bleed onto the Maple when you sand and apply the finish. This one still isn’t perfect, but I feel like I’m getting a better hang of using the lathe tools – and that is what these coffee scoops are all about, practice :-)

The laminations really add a lot to the appeal of the spoon. Good design of woods.

Very nice, Bill. I think your lathe skills are coming along quite well.

Thanks Donna, Charlie and Roger. I’m hoping to keep turning until I get as good as Captain Eddie

Eddie is an incredibly talented turner, teacher and he happens to be a neighbor.

Wow, that is a very nice scoop! I have been thinking about one, too. Much better than plastic and looks great in the kitchen. You did a beautiful job centering the laminations and aligning with the handle. Nice going, Bill !!!!!!!!!!!!.................................Jim
