Been playing around with the lathe a little and have gotten a kick out of turning these little Scoops. This one is a piece of Tesota (never heard of it before), hard maple and the handle is Tiger Maple and Padauk.

I’ve never worked with Tesota before – but I kind of like it, it had sapwood running down through the middle. Not great, but I’m learning with every project. I got the best finish off of the tool with this one – I used my Skew and was finally happy with the results it gave me. I started sanding with 220 grit, rather than my usual 80 grit from most projects

Nice job, Bill.

I’ve been slacking off on my turning lately. This makes me want to get back to it.

Nice scoop Bill. We need a new coffee scoop so I think you gave me my next project. I think Tesota is some form of the Ironwood family, but not 100% sure, would have to look it up.

Now that is a great lookin’ coffee scoop. I can just see that heaped over with coffee at ”anyone’s” home. Nice job and the woods compliment each other well.
