wooden spoon kitchen utensil hand carved from salvaged Mesquite wood. This one is 9 3/4 inches long with a 1 5/8 inch wide bowl. Made from a branch of Honey Mesquite from eastern Texas. The heartwood is very dark and there is a patch of lighter sap wood on the rim of the bowl and on the top of the handle. The rim of the bowl is curved slightly and set straight on with the straight handle. 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.
