This is a one of a kind wooden spoon carved from salvaged Mesquite wood from eastern Texas. Free shipping till the end of July. It came from some wood cleared for pasture. It is 12 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide. It has what I call a reverse handle in that it dips down and then back up at the bowl. I made it that way because of the shape of the piece of wood it came from. It looks nice and does not effect the functionality of the spoon. This one would be a great general purpose workhorse around the kitchen for stirring, mixing and serving. It is all dark heartwood with really interesting grain. It is exactly the color of the browned crust of a beef roast slow cooked on the barbecue. Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.

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.
