Turning a Honey Dipper

Project Idea: Turning a Honey Dipper
by Curtis Turner
Round Rock, Texas

The bees have been busy collecting pollen around our house for a few weeks now. I could not help but think about all that delicious honey they were producing. Which inspired me to turn a honey dipper. Honey dippers are a very simple spindle project. The amount of wood, tools and time to turn a dipper make this a good project for beginners.
