I saw this project in a book and have wanted to try to turn one for some time, today was the day. I laminated plywood in the center of the handle for strength and thought it would look interesting. I used a 3 inch ABS coupler for the collet, cut a tapered groove in one end for the chuck jaws and bored the other end out for the scoop. It ended up to be a press fit so no clamp was necessary. It was a quick fun project so if this interests you give it a try.

PS. Where did the handle go. BEWARE

good work. Looks like you would have to be very careful.

Using the PVC pipe was a great idea. So I just stole it.
I have fussed with making some small spoons to go with the salt cellars I make and I think I have been doing it the hard way. So now I will try a smaller version of your method.

Might give this a try. I’ve turned a couple scoops and make them two pieces. My problem has been blowing out the bowl with the expansion chuck, this would solve that.

Even the pictures look dangerous!
But it looks as the results were worthwhile!
