I used a router to round over the handle and bottom of the scoop. If you don't have a router you can still complete the project but it will require a lot more sanding. The curve on the front of the scoop was made with a belt sander. If you don't have a power belt sander then wrap sandpaper around a block of wood and taper the front of the scoop.
