This scoop is another style I saw Soren Berger turn recently. The difference is the oval bowl that makes the scoop more difficult to hold while hollowing the bowl.
I wanted a better way to hold the wood than a jamb chuck or a scroll chuck. Jamb chucks require wood and custom tooling and are usually used only once. Scroll chuck leave nasty marks on the wood that must be disguised with decorative elements or sanded smooth again.
The brainstorm is a set of wood jaws that bolt on to my scroll chuck body. The chuck body provides clamping pressure. The wood jaws provide quick and easy customization options. They’re added benefit is that if my tool gets too close to the jaws, no harm is done to the project, tools, or me.
I’ll show details for the chuck in the next video.
