Here are a few honey dippers that I have made recently. I have been able to sell several of these over the past few months. Took me a while to final get the design on the dipper part. Have to made a special tool to cut the width of the grove but and it worked okay.
Most of the time I just use scrap pieces to make these.
Thanks for looking.

These look like fun projects. I’ve been needing to make some for home and extended family. If you don’t mind, I think I’ll try your version, or something close to it.
Do you have a preference of wood or finish, if any?

btks: As you see I used cedar. I have tried several different kind and the ones I would stay away from is oak. pine. About anything else should work but there are a lot of different woods I haven’t tired.
Mistakes I made was first making the dia. of the dipper to large, next was the grove was to wide. Women let me know real quick that wouldn’t work. Was told that would waste a lot of honey. Dia. is 1 inch, I made a tool to cut the grove 1/8 inch wide and you cut the depth about 3/16 deep. The length depends on using a small jar or quart jar or whatever container you will be using.
Good luck. They are fun to make and only takes few minutes once you get started.
