Turned 3 more scoops today. First 2 pics are Flame Box Elder and Walnut. 3rd pic is Spalted Elm and Walnut and the last one is Spalted Elm. Fun projects even if it does take me about an hour to do one.

The bowl is 1-3/8” across and 1-7/8” deep handles are around 5-6”

They look good. If you don’t mind a suggestion – if you round over the end of the handle that is inserted into the scoop you will get a more finished look. I was turning them just like yours until I realized that the end of the handle and the scoop would never mate if left flat. Rounding over gives a much more finished look IMHO. But they are looking good and are really fun to make.

I really like the style in the 3rd picture, I haven’t done one like that yet, but I plan on it soon.

Thanks everyone. Folks must like them I sold out in a couple of hours this morning and got them into a specialty shop located in an artist town. The shop also took all of my honey dippers I had with me.

So, back to the lathe I go. Still have more people online wanting them and I have a show in a couple of weeks.
