Got Scrap?
« on: October 07, 2012, 09:11:02 PM »
I do and I used some of it this evening to fashion a couple of long-handled wooden spoons.

They are from QS Post Oak and are about 14" long. The QS blanks were ripped from the outside areas of a 4/4 flat-sawn board that had the pith in it.

You can't tell from the pic but the business ends are scooped out. I used a 7/14 gouge for that and turned the 3/8" diameter handles at the lathe.

They are not anything special but they were quick and fun.

I like them and thanks for posting. I have wondered about the grandson on the wood lathe and that looks like the perfect little project for him. He has made cypress boat padles on the band saw but this will round out more of his edumacation. (I know round out)

I was always under the impression that the best spoons were made from "fruit woods".

Am I right or wrong?

Thanks Woodchuck and yes, it would be a good project for learning how to turn. After I bandsaw out the blank, i put the big end in my scroll chuck and bring the tailstock up against the little end. Then I tighten down the chuck until it's just snug. That long handle will flex a little so a sharp gouge and small cuts are in order.

Probably thought about spooning grits onto a plate.   :D

I have no idea, David. I just used what I had laying around.

I know that I like them.   smiley_thumbsup

Thanks, MM.

A woodworking friend of mine teaches a wood turning class at a local woodworking supply store.  Last year he told me that he made the statement that you could turn something out of just about any piece of wood.  One of the students dug up a half-buried foot long piece of 1" thick ash slab covered in mud out of the parking lot and jokingly challenged him to make something out of it.

He turned this beautiful shallow bowl out of it. Said the student turned it over and over in his hands and said "*DanG you're good!"  Gave it to me as a present.
