Turning gifts – coffee scoop from PSI kit using an acrylic blank

Well in this video I am turning a gift. It is a coffee scoop from a PSI kit. I am using a blank of acrylic that I have on hand and not one of coffee bean blanks  as suggested in the kit. The blank is a normal size pen blank cut and fitted with the tube from the kit. I am not a pro turner, nor have I had much experience turning acrylic. It was a bit of a challenge choosing the coreect tools and I went through a few. In the end I mostly used a roughing gouge and skew for scraping. I finished the project with Huts Ultra Shine.

Until next time, take care, stay safe in your shop.

See you in the Workshop!
