Online how-to for "Scoops"?

Dominic Greco in Richboro PA
>Hi everyone,

So I'm talking with my Mom tonight and she mentions these wooden scoops she saw at a local gormet cookware store. She then tells me how nice of a project these would be for me to make. Now, I'm not the most alert person in the world (as my wife will gladly attest to). But even I could see where this was leading! :>) Besides, if they're easy enough to make, I'm sure they'd be a real hit as Xmas gifts for my family.

So, I was just wondering if anyone knew of an online article (or even one that's been published in a wood mag) that outlines the procedure for turning wooden scoops like the kind Richard Raffan and Nick Cook are known for.

I've looked on Yahoo and was only able to find references to the Raffan book and some web sites that sell the scoops.

I imagine that they're somewhat straight forward to turn. You turn the shape, hollow it, and use a bandsaw to arrive at the final shape. Or would you bandsaw out the profile while it's still square?......

See why I'd like to read up on this?

Any help?
