By: Kurt Hertzog
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.

|Turn a 2-piece Coffee Scoop|
By: Ruth Niles
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!
