There is a challenge out there for the #YTCCC2021 or the YouTube Cross Channel Challenge 2021. Apparently, a group of people got together and have organized a monthly challenge.

Bruce from Jordan Woodwerx has the announcement for the month of March and the challenge is “water”. Woodturning something to do with water? First thought was, turn ice? NOOoooo… that would be silly. Second thought went toward, what is water used for? Maybe I can turn something related to that. Water is only good for two things, making coffee and beer! LOL

I planned on making a scooper of some sort and size, why not a coffee scoop. Right, sounds like a plan, now I just need the wood and off we go. I picked up a piece of butternut wood, for no other reason other than it was available, and I never turned it.

What I thought it would look like in my mind, did not translate into reality. However, I learned a lot. Pressure fit wood can split. Perhaps a round flat blade rather then a forstner bit would have been better. Maybe simply turn the piece round and chuck it to drill using the lathe sand and shape the inside.

Overall, I’m happy with the first attempt. Next time I have more information to work with and make it better.

Here’s this weeks video: Coffee Scoop
