Why do we use beeswax for coating our sand scoop handles?
In the production of our handles for shovels and scoops we use ancient technology of beeswax waxing! Beeswax is a natural product, which is evolved from working honeybee glands. This natural substance steadfastly maintains its properties for centuries! It was known in ancient times and used as water repellents in any way. Today there are many ways to protect the products of wood, but the wax coating technology "waxing" remains unchanged. The main advantage of this method of impregnating wood is that the wax penetrates deep into the wood, and does not remain on the surface and preserves it for a long time interior and exterior. Wax treating gives creaminess to the wood that can be felt while touching it and it doesn't hide natural heat of the wood unlike varnishes and other substances. Waxed surface of our scoops is protected from moisture, dust, dirt, mildew. It makes the wood more durable and resistant to atmospheric changes and mechanical damages, retains heat and makes the wood "breath".
Advantages of natural beeswax:
Harmless to health
Emphasizing the beauty and improving the texture of the wood, it becomes more expressive and brighter, in some time it slightly becomes darker and acquires noble golden tone.
Wood surface after waxing becomes water repellent and resistant to scratching, besides, it breathes unlike after varnishing.
Waxed wood acquires a noble matte gloss and has a great smell.
It has been long time it is known about the healing properties of wax. The presence of about 300 chemical components in it, with carotene and vitamin A as the main ones among them, makes it a versatile mean for wax applications, healing and restoration of the skin. Wax anaesthetises affected joints, relieves ache in hands after fractures and injures, heals bruises and abrasions. The composition of beeswax contains substances with antibiotic and antibacterial properties that impede the growth and development of many disease-causing organisms. Wax nutrients absorbed through the skin, treat inflammation and skin redness caused by them. Natural wax nutrients restore the original color and elasticity of the skin. Beeswax is not soluble in water, alcohol, glycerin and cold spirit.

Why did we chose exactly these woods for making handles, holders and cuttings for our sand scoops?
Sand scoop handles of the company «Lucky Scoop» are made manually by our craftsmen in wood from natural eco-clean materials!
Firstly we examined the technical properties of wood. The most important of them are:
Durability. Wood durability is the ability of a felled tree to be held for more or less long time without losing its technical properties. Durability of wood depends on the breed, age and the conditions in which the wood is held. Felling trees in winter are persisted better than trees felled in summer. This is because in summer the nutrients are dissolved in wood juice, which provokes decay and wood deterioration. But in winter sap consists mainly of pure water.
Hardness. Hardness is the ability of wood to resist the penetration of solid foreign objects. For example: Hardness is hammering nails, cutting, drilling or boring. Consequently, the denser the wood, the harder it is. Ash, birch, maple and acacia belong to the sawmills.
Strength. Strength is the wood resistance for breach, fracture, compression, bending and twisting. All these kinds of external influences resistance are extremely appreciated for scoop handles manufacturing. Before you buy a wooden handle for a scoop, you must know its bending resistance, compressive strength and twisting resistance to. Knotted wood lowers its strength fracture.
Weight. Weight of the wood depends on the weight of the wood itself, and water in it. In freshly cut wood the weight of water is 40-50% and air-dry weight of the wood is about 10-15%. Using artificial drying we get absolutely dry wood. Drying time depends on the density of the wood.
Elasticity. Elasticity is the ability of a wood to bend under the influence of any force and then come back to its original position upon termination of this force. The elasticity of the wood depends on the species, age, and humidity. Dry wood and heavier species have better elasticity. The more the age the more elastic it is. Trees with evenly placed growth rings have better elasticity.
Brashness. Brashness is the ability of the wood to be brashed along its filaments. This property does not depend on the structure of wood, humidity, knottiness, etc. for all the species on same way. The biggest brashness have spruce and fir, the smallest - birch, ash, maple, acacia.
Before buying a handle for sand scoop "Universal" of ash you need to know that the ash wood, due to its elasticity and strength, was used for the manufacture of combat guns and hunting guns. Ash was used for stakes and combat baton that were strong and elastic. Ancient Novgorodians were producing bows of five ash plates glued with bone glue. Bear spears, lances, arrows, shafts these all are examples of hunting weapons of ash. Well dried and seasoned ash boards were used in shipbuilding. For furniture manufacturing if we are taking into account the beauty, ash texture is equated to ebony and mahogany. In the XIX century ash was used for the producing carriages and sleighs. Ash was bent for making skis, hoops, rockers, paddles and rims. Now poles for gymnastic bars, racing paddles, high-quality skis, billiard cues, baseball bats are made from ash.
Before you buy a handle for sand scoop "Universal" of birch you need to know that to get a good large ornamental birch material the tree must be cut at the age of 60-80 years and sometimes even of 100 years old. Dense birch wood is durable and resistant to brashness. Used for the manufacturing of plywood, skis, stocks for firearms. Birch has no smell, so it is used for the production of wooden dishes and parquet. Birch was also used for medicinal purposes, people were doing infusions from birch buds, bactericidal and healing tools, oil mixtures of birch buds were used as a dermatological remedy. The tar is a traditional preservative and disinfectant remedy. Since olden times birch twigs have been used for therapeutic and prophylactic purposes in Russian baths.
