    Sandy, I like your scoop. The carving in the handle flows nicely.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Good looking scoop Sandy. The carving is nice as well.

    I guess the picture doesn’t do it justice,,. It’s a little ruff. But I used it to measure the coffee this morning and it works just like a real spoon. :-). Thank you!

    Here is the scoop that I’ve been using for a while. Its what is left from a failed spoon. The handle broke while I was carving the spoon, too thin in one area. I didn’t bother to smooth the scoop up. Just added a little decoration, oiled it and stuck it in the coffee container. It still brings a smile to my face every time I make coffee.

    Well I just had to give it a go. I love the fact that a little cut off that was destined for the scrap bin is put to use.

    Greg, good save.

    Dave, it looks like it was shaped for your hand. LOL

    If any body else makes a scoop, make sure you post them up.

    These all look very good! Keep the pictures coming! Next to woodworking, roasting and drinking coffee is probably my second favorite hobby, followed by homebrewing beer. These scoops will make a nice present with a some home roasted coffee.

    Cheers!

    Dan, The one I made has been religated to the coffee tin. I’ll probably make a few more for gifts.

    Greg, I like the rough sketch carvings you put on your stuff. It gives it your own unique style.

    Greg, it’s the same hunk of wood I made my spoon from, it’s a really dark piece of walnut I picked up from the cutoff pile at my lumber yard. The only problem is it’s the same color as coffee and it’s hard to see it in the coffee jar!

    John, yep it’s made to fit!

    Thanks Jay. I’ve always liked pieces that have unrefined and simple decoration. Those types of touches are what give a piece a folk art, hand made look and feel, to me anyway. I admire highly refined carvings and decoration and the skill required to execute them, but I don’t have any desire to replicate them. Anyway, I found a technique that both works and speaks to me. Glad to hear someone else finds it appealing too.

    It’s putting your own voice in your work that takes it from craft to art, in my opinion. I’m not even close to the point where I can develop my own voice in my work as I am just trying to become technically competent… but I think you are doing a nice job with that.
