To complete my video series on wood scoops, I turned this cedar scoop about 7 inches long and 2 inches diameter, finished with beeswax and mineral oil.
The turning axes were:
- The original center of the wood for the scoop.
- A skewed axis for the handle.
- The original axis for the end of the handle.
One safety note: I used hot melt glue to fasten the scoop to a piece of scrap before sawing the scoop. I did not wnat the round scoop turning at the saw.
I love the finished look and feel of these three cedar scoops. I can improve each, I’m sure, but that’s for the future. The cedar feels crisp and light and sounds nice when two are gently hit together.
