Ice Cream Anyone?

I am trying to refine my turning skills, so I’m doing some simple projects. This is an Ice Cream Scoop that I turned from a piece of Mahogany. I’ve been using only Easy Wood carbide tools, but on this one I used the conventional turning tools – 3/4” roughing gouge and 3/8” spindle gouge. I think it shows some improvement, at least I hope it does.

Your skills are improving, and so are the pictures. Now where’s my ice cream?

Very good Bill… Makes me want some ice cream (a little cake wouldn’t hurt also)

I’m coming over for some ice cream now! Which way do I go?

Very nice! I just made one for my daughter. Now I need to make one for my house! What did you use for the finish?

hanks for the nice comments, I appreciate it. Brett the finish is Doctor's Woodshop Pens Plus. I really like the stuff, it’s a combination of Walnut Oil and other goodies. It give a finish that rivals CA finish and is a lot easier. I follow that up with a coat on Renaissance Wax.

I made one of these a couple years ago, turned out kind of nice. I can’t find the brass scoop kit anymore, only the stainless steel. Where did you get yours?

Mip i got the kit from Chef Ware Kits. I ordered some other items and they sent the scoop as a sample to try.

Jeff, I am very happy with the Doctor’s Woodshop products. I’m going to order a few more things soon.

Chuck believe it or not I haven’t had a bowl of Ice Cream in over a year. I decided that I was waaaayy to heavy last March, so I started on Weight Watchers. I’ve lost right at 70 pounds and am pondering a small serving of the nectar of the Gods soon :-).
