Coated with salad bowl finish (a non-toxic varnish)
This slightly right handed Rice Spoon is made from Birch. It is a large size spoon (see the photo with the ruler). It is a spoon that would be great for serving and cooking. It has an interesting shape and it fits great in your hand. The large sturdy handle and thick wood make it great for scooping something heavy like mashed potatoes or rice and fits great in your hand. I love the two tone color in the grain.
It has a Salad Bowl Finish which is designed to be used with wood products that come in contact with food. If you avoid leaving it in boiling water or in high heat this will prolong its glossy look. It's finished coating will make cleaning and sanitizing easier. The spoon will hold up well if you keep it out of the dishwasher. No stain was used. The honey color is the natural color of the wood.
I take great pride in my wood working. I enjoy making a variety of spoons and spatulas. I am hoping that you enjoy using it as much as I have enjoyed making it. Each spoon is signed by myself.
