Short Wood Spoon

"Totally the best! These carved serving spoons are the best, the quality is outstanding!"

This Handmade Short Wood Serving Spoon is made in the U.S.A. It's a quality wooden utensil that's hand carved by Artisan woodworkers in Leslie, Arkansas from sustainably harvested local wood. It's a functional piece of art that can be passed down for generations.

Uses: Wonderful for mashed potatoes, oatmeal and even for spooning fresh berries over your favorite flavor of homemade ice cream (we prefer cookies and cream).

Makes a lovely gift for your favorite chef and a charming piece of kitchen decor.

Summary:

  • Hand carved by Artisan woodworkers in Leslie, Arkansas.
  • Quality craftsmanship.
  • A functional piece of art.
  • Made from sustainably harvested local wood.

The Maker's Process:

Artisan woodworkers make these lovely wooden utensils just like back in the good old days by following these steps: 

  1. The perfect block of wood is selected.
  2. A custom template is laid on the wood and the shape is drawn out.
  3. The block is carefully guided through a band saw to make the basic shape.
  4. Rough sanding gets the piece closer to the end shape.
  5. When making a spoon, the bowl is gouged out to the desired depth.
  6. The piece is sanded again, by hand, using increasingly finer sandpaper until the desired smoothness has been reached.
  7. Next is everyone's favorite step - the piece is rubbed with the maker's own blend of edible cooking oils and a little beeswax.
  8. All that's left is to step back and admire the piece as a sustainably produced piece of functional art.

Hand wash only please. Oil occasionally to keep your wooden utensils looking their best.

Due to the nature of each item being individually handmade, some variations may occur in shape, wood color and grain from the items pictured. Each one is unique and beautiful.

Size: Length 9", Bowl Width 3", Bowl Length 3 1/4". Sizes are approximate.

Serving spoon

Disappointed! The bowl of the spoon is very rough..

Hi Cherie. Thanks for the feedback about the Handmade Short Wood Serving Spoon. The maker of these items purposely leaves their hand carving marks in the bowl as part of their art and style. We would be happy to take the item back and offer you a full refund if you are not satisfied with it. We will send you an email with the information about sending the item back in case you would like to. Thanks for supporting local artisans and small businesses.
