This wooden spoon has a large bowl set at an angle to the handle. The 2 1/2 wide bowl is deep and about 1/3 of the total length of the spoon. It is 12 inches in length and made from some Mesquite wood that came from some pasture clearing on a ranch in Texas. The wood is dark heartwood with a patch of yellow sapwood on the back of the bowl. This spoon is stout so it could be a great mixing spoon as well. 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.
