In this tutorial, Kurt shows us how to make a unique, two-piece scoop. Instead of relying on a mortise and tenon joint in the thin scoop side wall, he uses a wire twisted around the body of the scoop and anchored into the handle. This is a very clever solution to the handle problem and you should check out the article to see how he did it.

In this photo tutorial, Ruth Niles shows how she turns unique coffee scoops. They are 2 piece turnings, the main scoop body and a handle. The main body can actually be a glue-up to enable you to use multiple woods. When you do this, you can create a really nice contrasting band on the body which could then match the wood used in the handle.

This is a very attractive coffee scoop and one that most coffee makers would enjoy! I hope that you give it a try!
