Scoups

Postby Mike Stafford » Mon May 02, 2016 7:41 am

I'll be the first to post something for this challenge- a few scoops. I guess they could be considered a spindle turning project.

While on the Woodturning Cruise I learned to turn scoops from Richard Raffan. They are a quick and easy project the way he taught me to do them. For a while I always ended my demos with a scoop because I could turn one in less than 5 minutes if things went well.

I haven't turned any scoops in several years so I thought I would give it a try for this challenge. Here are the results.

Scoops in mahogany, maple, cherry and chakte viga ranging in size from 2" in diameter to 3/4" in diameter. I turned the mahogany scoop first and it is a little thick, I forgot the bead detail which is why it is a little thick. Some of that wood would have been pared away while I was forming the bead. It would have helped if I started out with a longer piece of wood than I did.

I did remember to detail the end of the handles like Richard taught.

Good looking scoops Mike. I've made a few of these over the years but not with such a clean look as yours.

Thanks Curt.

Apparently I don't know how to spell scoops. :oops: I have no idea how the word became scoups. :shrug:

Perhaps a scoop when used for soup becomes a scoup. :bonk:

Have you ever thought about how many times your creativity as a writer and speller has been stifled by those two Merriam brothers and their friend Noah Webster? A soup scoup sounds like something everyone ought to have in their drawer!

Well here is the scoop on scoup, or at least a partial scoop, as well as how you can get the full scoop on scoup if you want to sign up for the paid version of Websters unabridged dictionary. Search for scoup using Google and you go straight to the sales pitch. Use Yahoo and you get a teaser definition from Websters:
chiefly Scottish: to run with skips and leaps... and then the sales pitch.

Some of the others just assume you don't know how to spell and take you straight to "scout" or "scoop"

None of them asked why I have nothing better to do today.

Edited:
By the way I like your scoops in spite of your spelling.
