handle. I love Shaker design and it is fitting to use Curly Maple wood for it because they eskewed ornamentation on their work but they delighted in figured woods like curly Cherry and Birdseye Maple. I guess they saw it as decoration from God and that was alright. They believed that that which had in it the highest functionality, had the most beauty and so do I.
This is a very large spoon. Really it is a wooden bowl with a handle rather than a spoon. I imagine the original was used to dip flour from a deep tin or drawer. It would come in handy if you do a lot of baking or you could just stand holding it up to show who is really in charge of the household. It is 14 inches long and 4 5/8 inches wide. It is calibrated to hold exactly 1 cup. This would make one heck of a pancake batter dipper or a chili server or a coffee scoop for a giant.
Finished with beeswax and mineral oil
