This is a 8.5 inch hand carved wooden spoon. Shipping on this item is free till the end of August on all orders to the U.S and Canada. It has a large bowl relative to its length and the handle has a sinuous curve. I call spoons like these salsa spoons because they are good for servings small dishes of sauce or salsas. The salvaged Plum wood has a warm reddish orange color which will deepen over time to a much richer color. This one could be used in either the right or left hand. Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.

Read a story about collecting the wood for this spoon here: http://kitchencarvings.com/1/post/2012/03/adventures-of-the-tree-grim-reaper.html


This utensil is "pre-washed" so to speak. During the final sanding the grain is raised twice with hot water and then the loose fiber ends are sanded off with a finer grit of sandpaper so that in use the spoon will not get rough. Then it is soaked in a bath of melted beeswax and mineral oil at 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Care is easy, just wash in hot soapy water and towel dry. Apply some mineral oil or Walnut oil every couple of weeks. Better yet is a mixture of 3 parts mineral oil to one beeswax. Melt them together in a double boiler and pour into a small jar. We usually sell 4 ounce jars but we are out right now. We should have some more soon.
