I've made these wooden spoon rests from a slice of staghorn sumac. This is a small, shrub-like tree that grows wild in northeastern U.S, considered by many as a weed tree, however the red berry clusters can be used to make a lemonade-type drink, hot lemon-flavored tea, as well as awesome wood products. The wood grains and colors are beautiful and the contrasting sapwood adds a lovely cream-colored frame to the spoon rest. They are sealed well with 4 coats of lacquer.
The spoon rest not only contains food spills and helps to preserve your wooden spoons, but also makes for a small, unobtrusive, but beautiful addition to your kitchen counter.
Please remember, these are cut from a section of log and follow the natural shape of the tree, so
sizes vary and no two are alike. Approx. measurements are 3" x 5".
Hand wash please.
