This listing is for a hand carved wooden spoon made from North American Black Cherry Wood. Its rich auburn and warm honey hues are enhanced by the silky texture of cherry wood. This would be a wonderful spoon for stirring up a batch of potato salad for your next summer picnic.

You are buying this exact item. It is 11-1/2" overall length and the bowl is 3" x 2". It is hand carved and shows the tool marks and irregularities of a handmade product. It has been both dry and wet hand sanded for a nice smooth finish.

North American Black Cherry wood is becoming more rare and valuable so I don't usually have access to it. It's also my favorite wood so I was pretty pleased when we got a call from a local contractor who was clearing a small timber for a neighbor and discovered a few nice cherry, maple and walnut trees. Even the contractor clearing the land couldn't stand to just push those nice logs into the burn pile and he made a special effort to salvage them for us and even helped us load them on our trailer.

It's been hand rubbed with several coats of a foodsafe mixture of beeswax and mineral oil. Hand wash and dry and every couple of months wipe it down with some mineral oil and it will last a lifetime.
