Hand carved primitive mixing spoons made from Cherry wood.
Sizes vary from 10.5" long to 12" long and from 2.5" wide to 3" wide.

Each spoon is sealed with olive oil for a completely food safe finish. Just $28 per spoon. Shipping is $4.95 for as many spoons as we can put in a Priority Mail box.

Carved by hand from cherry wood grown on Historic Hamer Hills Farm, circa 1837, in Montgomery County, Mississippi.
The giant cherry tree from which these spoons were made was felled when Hurricane Katrina crept over the farm, still at a Category 1 Hurricane, back in 2005.

Farm owner Charles Hamer, the fifth generation of his family to live and work on the farm, salvaged the logs from the many trees downed by Katrina, let them age naturally, then had the massive logs sawed into different size lumber. The lumber then continued to age naturally under shelter which makes it stronger than kiln-dried lumber.

These spoons, and the other primitive kitchen utensils Hamer makes, now at age 84, are created in harmony with the unique wood grain. He makes a variety of primitive kitchen utilitarian pieces. We will be posting more of them in this Etsy store. Hamer is the uncle of Penny Sanford Fikes, the porcelain sculptress.
