This wooden spoon has a large bowl for its length with a curved rim. The bowl is 2 1/4 inches wide. It is 12 inches in length and made from some Mesquite wood that came from some pasture clearing on a ranch in Texas. There is a nice pattern of darker heartwood and lighter sapwood in the bowl. This spoon came from a small limb and I just let the natural shape of the wood to determine the shape or the rim of the bowl after cutting in from the outside. The bowl bends around to the left so at first I thought this would be strictly for right handed cooks but It feels right in the left hand 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.
