Turning a Coffee Scoop on the Lathe

Turning a scoop from a solid piece of wood is a precarious operation. I built a jig from some hard maple and a hose clamp, and while it’s a great tool, it always seems crazy to get that scoop spinning like this, with the handle out sideways.

I destroyed an earlier version of this jig when I cut too deeply and caught my chisel blade in the wood of the scoop.  The catch sent the scoop flying and destroyed the maple teeth holding it to the lathe.
