Make your own deluxe dessert disher with this beautiful stainless steel scoop and ferrule. Get creative with a custom-turned wooden handle, then attach the hardware for the perfect finishing touch. Instructions for turning a handle and assembling the ice cream scoop are included. In addition to this kit you will need the following:Wood: The minimum blank size we recommend is 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 6", in a strong hardwood such as maple, cherry, walnut, oak, or yellow birch. Of the imported hardwoods bubinga, purpleheart, gongola alves and cocobolo make wonderful handles. Turning tools: Spindle roughing gouge, spindle/detail gouge, parting tool and optional skew chisel. A pair of outside calipers with rounded edges on the measuring points is helpful in fitting the ferrule. Drill bit: 3/8" brad point or regular twist bit. Chucks: Depending on how you will hold and drill the piece, you may need a scroll-type chuck for your headstock and a Jacobs-style chuck for your tailstock.Glue and finish: The tang can be glued into the handle with epoxy or a thick type of CA ("super glue"). The finish could be with a drying type of oil such as pure tung oil or boiled linseed oil. For a film type of finish (for extra protection against moisture and a higher sheen finish) try a wiping type polyurethane or a gel varnish.
