When I part off, especially when the end butts against hardware, I don't aim for square. I cut it slightly concave, or taper the cut from the outer diameter to the center. This makes the outer edge contact before the center, and eliminates the gap.

It looks good, and makes me want to make one. The shape looks comfortable.

Thanks for the advice John! I'm used to doing my parting with a metal lathe. :biggrin: But I will try to remember this if I need to part anything else on the wood lathe. The handle shape is quite comfortable to use. I guess I did nail that part. :wink:

Any gap is not very noticeable Obi Wan. The shape looks very nice, but the picture I really like! Its tough to get the metal parts to look decent with any reflection, but this is an excellent picture. Maybe when you grow up you have a future in photography! :rotfl:

Thanks Mark! Obi Wan....:rolleyes: Yeah I didn't think about the reflection off the chrome scoop. I need to cover the front of the booth with white paper and cut a hole in it to shoot through. Just haven't done it yet.

Do/tweak what you feel necessary, but I was actually saying I LIKE the picture with the muted reflection of the scoop. There is just a little shine on the right side of the cherry, but it also looks fine.

For a close up picture with metal and wood, I think it looks great as is. :good:

Glad to see someone's having success with these scoopers. I've about pulled out all my hair trying to get one to "line up" just right. Did I mention, I'm all but bald. So not a lot of hair to pull. Very nice and good job!

Thank you Bobby! I'm curious to see how long it will take to chip off the CA.:biggrin:
Have you thought about using Wood Turners Finish (WTF) on them? It's food safe and it also gives a great finish. Just a thought.

No I haven't. I had CA on hand, and only wanted to make one scoop. But I'll take your word on WTF. Thanks!

I've done a few bottle stoppers and all I've used is WTF on them. Here are a couple examples. The more you apply, the shinier it gets.
