    Turned Ice Cream Scoop

    I've really been getting into turning kits lately.

    Here was one I did it's an Ice Cream Scoop. I made this one out of cocobolo wood. I think it turned out great.

    Cool! And not a pun.

    On my to-do list.

    You are too late. I just had a bowl of chocolate chip so I don't need a scoop.

    And that's my scoop for the day.

    Enjoy,

    Daris,
    That is a great looking ice cream scoop. I love cocobola and that metal really sets it off.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    I've made a few of them and they are well received as gifts. You did a very nice one. Love the wood you picked. I think they also look nice with Tru-stone as a handle. This reminds me, my son-in-law broke the one I made for him, he gave me the handle back, maybe that was a hint to make him another. He broke his at the tang. Must have been mighty hard ice cream like "rocky" road or something.

    Is this the kit that the wooden handle unscrews off of the scoop so the handle doesn't get wet?
    Nice looking scoop and like others have said, on my to do list for someday. Great job on yours!!

    That came out great, Daris. I think cocobolo is the perfect wood for this...it's kind of oily so it might hold up to repeated dunking.

    Just of interest to me, but you are only second person in my 70 years that I have know with the name Daris. One of my best friends through school was named Daris. Darn if I can remember his last name.
