Handmade wooden utensils for your kitchen

I have worked with wood for years to make things I live with; bookcases, desks, sound system shelves. It occurred to me that I didn't quite have the right tools I wanted in my kitchen and so I started making some - tweaking which woods I tried, lamination techniques, and so on until I feel I have arrived at a nice balance.
These tools feel exactly right in the hand - as they should. They are smooth, last well, and have the character of something definitely hand made.

Care instructions

For frequent-usage care, liberally coat your tools in olive oil and leave on a cookie tray on the counter overnight. For tools used less often, liberally coat the tool in Mineral Oil (from a drugstore) and leave on a cookie sheet overnight.

Where are the tools made?

I make all tools in the small town of Bowmanville, an hour east of Toronto, Ontario Canada.
