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.
A delicately balanced tool essential to the spindle turners kit.Delicately balanced tools that are the planes of the spindle turners kit. Designed at Robert Sorby, the profile allows the tool to glide effortlessly along the tool rest without fear of the edges dragging on the rest. They will smooth cylinders, clean the end grain of spindles, cut shallow curves, beads, pummels and v-cuts, e.g. stair balustrade and chair legs. These tools are indispensable if a fine finish is required from the tool.
