Trying to get ready for a few shows and have some items for local shops. I made up another batch of scoops, sorry the pics aren’t better they really don’t show these off well.

First is Flame Box Elder, second is Spalted Box Elder, third is Spalted Elm and the last is Elm.

I love these. Do they hold a specific volume and if they do, how do you get them to be that size?

Thanks Kandy. Each scoop holds around 2 tablespoons. I use a measurement I found from another woodworker. I made a couple of story sticks to check the depth and use a micrometer to check the diameter but a ruler will work just fine. Make the opening 1-3/8” wide and 1-7/8” deep. I was turning all of the interiors but now I drill most out with a 1” Forstner’s bit to save time. Going to look for a larger bit today in fact to get rid of material quicker.

The handle has a 1/4” tenon which I glue on using Tightbond III or CA. Hope that helps.

-- Tommy,
