    Ice Cream Scoop

    I made this Ice Cream Scoop for the WoodCraft store that I work at. They gave me the kit and the blank, with the deal that I will make the scoop for the store's display. Then after Christmas I can have it. Not a bad deal, and a fun project.

    The scoop is brass. The handle is cocobolo, with a wipe on poly finish. The scoop is held on with epoxy.

    That came out looking very nice, Sean. I like the 'finger guard' at the front of the handle to keep your fingers out of the sticky stuff.

    Very nice turning. Do you know if the scoop is solid brass or brass plate over mystery metal?

    I see you work at Woodcraft. The one in West Seneca? I sort of know the area, my inlaws live amongst the Amish in South Dayton (south of Gowanda).

    Nice Sean, very nice. I still haven't turned an ice cream scoop handle. Like Vaughn, I do like the "finger guard"! Fit and finish look excellent. Don't think I could afford to work at a Woodcraft store, like the gun store job I was offered, "no thanks", can see it all clearly now, every pay day I would be looking at the boss and saying, "ok, how much do I owe this week?"

    Sean, nice scoop!. I have one of those kits but I have not turned it yet. My only concern with the kits is that the scoop does not go into the handle very far. How do you think the epoxy will hold up? I have bent some pretty heavy spoons scooping out frozen ice cream.
