Ice Cream Scoop

Ice cream is a favorite summer food for many people. And for many more it's a year round favorite food!

Getting the frozen ice cream out of the container is not always an easy thing. So, an ice cream scoop is a mandatory tool in the kitchen.

Now you can show off your turning skills and select your favorite wood to make your own turned handle for an ice cream scoop. Both you and your family will be proud to be using your custom turned ice cream scoop.

In this photo tutorial, Stephen shows us the 8 stpes that he uses to make an ice cream scoop with a turned walnut handle. He uses a popular Penn State Industries metal scoop which works on a 7mm pen mandrel. The photos are very good, large and really help explain how you can also make your own ice cream scoop.
